This text discusses the idea that the decline of storytelling coincides with the breakdown and fragmentation of temporal unity and "meaning of life" of the grand narratives which set the scene for the storyteller until the beginning of modern times in the 17th and 18th centuries. The art of exchanging experiences in the craft of writing then becomes in-formed by the quest for the "meaning of life" around which the narrative moves. In relation to this quest, the aim of the book is to focus upon what may be discerned as a common element in the oral tradition of storytelling and textual narratives. It aims to present a new metaphysics radically different from all traditional attempts in western philosophy to satsify the human desire for absolute knowledge of the Other.
