La représentation religieuse chez Kant et la philosophie kérygmatique de la religion de Ricœur

Myung Su Yang


Ricœur’s philosophy of religion follows the anthroplogy of Kant, according to which human nature is originally good and at the same time radically evil. Ricœur, however, considers the problem of evil more profoundly than Kant. He tries to find, in the religious kerygma, a deeper motivation of it than autonomy, whereas Kant, by means of allegorical interpretation, engages in the demystification of religion. The named God refers, beyond the conceptual God of Kant, to a super-abundant meaning in the midst of the meaninglessness of life and thus opens the horizen of theonomy. Theonomy makes the commandment of love into a non-violent appeal. Love combines the universal form and the particular content of the moral norm.
