On the Proper Use of Phenomenology Paul Ricoeur Centenary
Les sources phénoménologiques de la conception ricoeurienne du langage
Does Ricœur’s approach of language enter in contradiction with Husserl’s phenomenological legacy? In response to Claude Romano’s criticisms of the hermeneutical approach of language sustained by Ricœur, this paper intends to shed light on the complex connections between Husserl and Ricœur on the relations between language and experience. It aims to show, against what Romano suggests, that Ricœur’s thinking never leads to a linguistic idealism,
but follows effectively a phenomenological exigency through his hermeneutical project.
