Crisis, décisiones y temporalidades : sobre las bifurcaciones biograficas

Abstract : The trajectories of entry into adult life are full of events, periods of crisis, of biographical crossroads to which young people must react, make decisions, and sometimes, make a sudden change in their paths. In these moments of crisis, of change and realization of the improbable, challenges and logics of choice appear that would be invisible in the calm course of things. Based on a longitudinal qualitative survey of a panel of young people, what I propose here is a review of the notion of bifurcation. The stories and arguments developed allow us to identify the “ingredients” mobilized during the decision-making process. In this article we go through several levels: structural, contextual, relational and individual, and also diverse temporalities in interaction. It may be precisely the conjunction of these elements that allows this “rupture” of the expected social order.
