Description The transformation of the arts, foreseen and announced by Hegel, coincides with the birth of modernity. One of its essential aspects is the noetic turn in literature, which can be seen as a manifestation of autoreflexivity within the framework of intraliterary dynamics: autoreflexivity engages the questioning of language, it redefines the status of the lyric subject and the narrator, it problematizes discursivity and thus proposes new approaches to referential reality. Literature becomes a specific form of thought and a crucible of reflection by occupying a terrain that neither science nor philosophy could explore, that of existential human experience, not yet conceptualized. Literature thus produces discourses and concepts that can later be grasped and systematized by science and philosophy. An exemplification attempts to illustrate this process from the 19th century to the present day.
