Paul Ricoeur

French philosopher
First, it is not unimportant that the legislative texts of the Old Testament are placed in the mouth of Moses and within the narrative framework of the sojourn at Sinai.More Paul Ricoeur quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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]
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]
The spectacle is at the same time the mirage of self in the mirror of things.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.More Paul Ricoeur quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
