“Not that Levi-Strauss was opposed to narrative as such. Indeed, his monumental Mythologiques was intended to demonstrate the centrality of narrativity to the production of cultural life in all its forms. What he objected to was the expropriation of narrativity as the “method” of a “science” purporting to have as its object of study a “humanity” more fully realized in its “historical” than in its “pre-historical” manifestations. The import of his criticism was therefore directed at that “humanism” in which Western civilization took so much pride but the ethical principles of which it seemed to honor more in the breach than in the observance.” -Hayden White

“narrative as science” could perhaps be a stand-in for “scientifiction”?
