Self-acknowledgment: Self-confidence and fragility according to Paul Ricoeur
The conference aims to present to what extent the hermeneutics on which Paul Ricoeur engraves the phenomenological approach offers an original theory of the self as self-acknowledgment. It will show that this approach involves the distinction between two forms of identity (la mêmeté/sameness and l’ipséité/selfhood) and a dialectic between the self and the other. This conference will refer to the philosopher’s major work Soi-même comme un autre / Oneself as Another, published in 1990.
This collaboration will provide a basis for discussion with doctoral and postdoctoral students on their research.
