When we speak of consensus we speak of beliefs and values which could be the property of a single person, or many, or all; but intersubjective meanings could not be the property of a single person because they are rooted in social practice.

The creation of an accurate situation model is the main goal of comprehension and is what needs to be retained in memory if the knowledge is to be useful later. 1 Moreover this is dependent in part on schemas that are made up of information stored with regard to encountered prior scenarios (see Radvansky, 1999). And as Rolf A. Zwaan notes concerning reading and reacting to such texts, such responses are rooted not in responding to aesthetic models or linguistic ones, rather the understanding derives from the experiential and its comprehension: Comprehension is first and foremost the construction of a mental representation of what that text is about: a situation model.

Benzon (1993) is concerned primarily with ‘the role narrative plays in helping us shape coherent selves’ (130). He cautions against overly deconstructing the concept of selfhood: I accept that the Self is a construct; but that does not mean it is a ‘mere’ construct. Our mental life consists of constructs. As culture evolves, more sophisticated constructs come to replace the less sophisticated. And so it is with our selves.
