The concern about the disappearance of subject-oriented research in recent ethnological thinking served as the main impulse to look into and analyze the autobiography in folklore studies. Therefore, the paper presents the axiological status of life history /memorate, auto-biography/ in the history of folklore and related humanities through the most important and fundamental theoretical issues mentioned by Asadowskij, Röhrich, Niedermüller, Dégh, Sirovátka, Sandra Stahl, Bausinger, Bourdieu. The paper presents two basic concepts that treated autobiography as a blessing or a damnation: the first emphasizes its constructive character in correspondence with the objective reality (war experiences, historical events), which is opposed to constructed individuality revealed through biographical illusion; illusio understood as a belief in reality (Bourdieu, Bausinger). The paper mentions interesting fieldnotes in which life histories connect the real and the fantastic world. Bearing in mind plentiful folklore material, the author supports the principle of ontological reality that is being established between the spirit and time, objective consciousness and I, that has the ability to ignore empirical reality.
