Abstract

This brief study deals with aspects related to fantastic literature in Borges and Cortázar, and of the worldviews that originate in it. Both Borges and Cortázar redefine the fantastic in epistemological terms, so that their own study can be considered as an epistemology of those fictions that promote an understanding of reality through epistemic exercises. The key concept that emerges from this critical position is that which shows the link between fiction and knowledge.
