MOZEJKO, Danuta Teresa. Uses of Schemes as Significant Options of an Agent. Tóp. Sem [online]. 2017, n.37, pp.167-186. ISSN 2594-0619.

Within the frame of an interdisciplinary theoretical proposal that articulates Semiotics and Sociology, we understand textual production as the work of an agent who makes options whose effects are materialized in the text. In this article, we focus on the way the differences with the canonical narrative schemes and their figurativization produce particular effects of sense; their analysis still seems to keep its heuristic value. Applied to the study of the narrative program that structures Martín Kohan’s novel Ciencias morales (2010), this approach allows us to show how changes regarding presupposed stereotypes in the construction of heroic figures, enable an original representation of Argentinian dictatorship.

Keywords : narrative scheme; difference; effects of sense.
