Paul Ricoeur

French philosopher
Testimony should be a philosophical problem and not limited to legal or historical contexts where it refers to the account of a witness who reports what he has seen.More Paul Ricoeur quotes [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The narrative constructs the identity of the character, what can be called his or her narrative identity, in constructing that of the story told. It is the identity of the story that makes the identity of the character.More Paul Ricoeur quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If it is true that there is always more than one way of construing a text, it is not true that all interpretations are equal.More Paul Ricoeur quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
For my own part, I abandon the ethics of duty to the Hegelian critique with no regrets; it would appear to me, indeed, to have been correctly characterized by Hegel as an abstract thought, as a thought of understanding.More Paul Ricoeur quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But myth is something else than an explanation of the world, of history, and of destiny. Myth expresses in terms of the world - that is, of the other world or the second world - the understanding that man has of himself in relation to the foundation and the limit of his existence. Hence to demythologize is to interpret myth, that is, to relate the objective representations of the myth to the self-understanding which is both shown and concealed in it.More Paul Ricoeur quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
