Entretien sur la psychanalyse: réflexions en marge

Giuseppe Martini


The author comments the most relevant points of the dialogue that he had with Paul Ricœur in February 2003 on the topics of hermeneutics and psychoanalysis. Although the philosopher maintains a continuity with its contribution of 1965, he provides many innovative contributions for a philosophical reflection on psychoanalysis, with emphasis on the themes of narrative, of self and of ethics. In the conclusions of the work the author gives a particular importance to the fertility of the concepts of unrepresentable and untranslatable, which are in line with many contributions of contemporary psychoanalysis and increase their theoretical and even clinical potential thanks to deep reflection of the philosopher.
