Abstract

By following Ricoeur’s perspective, this article aims to show how the dialectics between vulnerability and effort constitutes personal emancipation’s mechanism. The author starts from a confrontation between Emmanuel Levinas and Paul Ricœur’s philosophies of the human being, deepening various stages in order to reinterpret the initial idea that we are born as an individual, while to become a person is a process that goes through an interrelational and cultural dialectics. In this perspective, the idea of identity as a hermeneutical course of emancipation reveals to be an ethical challenge (as Ricoeur and Levinas help to understand). On the one hand, this is the ethical challenge between passivity/vulnerability and subjective powers, and, on the other hand, between the capacity to be recognised by others and the will to progress with them, through the challenges of mutual recognition.
Cet article se propose, tout en suivant une perspective ricœurienne, de montrer comment la dialectique de la vulnérabilité et de l’effort constituent le “moteur émancipateur” de la personne. L’auteur part d’une confrontation entre la philosophie de l’homme d’Emmanuel Lévinas et celle de Paul Ricœur. Il en approfondit les différentes étapes afin de réinterpréter l’idée initiale que nous naissons en tant qu’individu, alors que devenir une personne est un processus qui passe par une dialectique interrelationnelle et culturelle. C’est dans cette perspective, qui, mieux que d’autres, révèle une proximité significative entre Ricœur et Lévinas, que l’idée d’identité en tant que parcours herméneutique d’émancipation révèle sa dimension de défi éthique. Défi éthique qui concerne, d’un côté, la relation entre la passivité/vulnérabilité et les pouvoirs subjectifs, et, de l’autre, la relation entre la capacité d’être reconnu par les autres et la volonté de progresser avec eux, à travers les défis de la reconnaissance mutuelle.
