This chapter studies several extended reflections on how illness and healing are constructed through narrative. It examines points of both divergence and convergence in the previous chapters, and aims to further an understanding of what narratives are, what they help people think about, and when they limit people's view. The chapter is composed into three main sections, which are about telling narratives in cultural worlds, the narrative turn under scrutiny, and narrative theorizing and lived experience.
