examines the autoethnographic method of inquiry that, inspired by constructionism and radical postmodernism, cancels the duality (researcher/object of study) that traditionally marks social research. Here, in fact, the objects of research are the experiences lived and narrated directly by the researcher him/herself, since no confrontation with otherness is expected. The author critically examines the most immediate methodological and epistemological consequences of the autoethnographic project, dwelling also on its refusal to generalize the research results and on the weakness of the political-emancipatory potential that the proposal sets as a priority objective.
