Le concept de “hantises”: de Derrida à Ricœur (et retour)

Joan Stavo-Debauge


This article considers Derrida’s and Ricœur’s take on the concept of haunting (hantise). Begining with Derrida’s use of the concept in Specters of Marx, the article then turns to Ricœur’s two rather distinct conceptions of the phenomenon of haunting (hantise) in Memory, History, Forgetting and in The Course of Recognition. After assessing the different uses of this concept in Ricœur’s work,  the article frames a new understanding of this phenomenon, one that is suitable for the social and historical sciences.
