Le jugement et sa logique dans la philosophie de Ricœur (Première partie)

Philippe Lacour


In this article, I underline the profound link existing between Ricœur’s practical philosophy and language. Indeed, the latter bestows unity upon the former, because it constitutes its main axis, for methodological reasons. First of all, I recall Ricœur’s definition of discourse and explain its various transphrastic dimensions. I then show how this philosophy of language is carefully used to build a very coherent logic of judgment, which underlies all Ricœur’s epistemological reflections about normative disciplines (ethics, law, politics). I particularly insist on the logic of legal judgment.
