Abstract provided by Publisher
The article is an analysis of the meaning of autobiography and biography in Dilthey’s hermeneutics
of the historical life. In this way, it shows Dilthey’s influence on the concept of
in contemporary philosophy. Starting from the methodological and epistemological aspect
of research on the autobiography, this article shows the role of autobiography in selfunderstanding,
and in understanding their own identity. The reference to Ricoeur, Mac-
Intyre and Taylor enables discovery of similarities and differences between them and the
philosophy of Dilthey. The most important difference lies in the fact that contemporary
authors direct their attention to the ethical dimension of the concept of narrative identity.
