Identidade narrativa e ética do reconhecimento

Maria Lucília Marcos


The relational and intersubjective model of subjectivity does not deny the subject, neither does the self-narrating exercise of synthesis of the heterogeneous evade the identity question. It is the role of language to found the meaning of ipseity, to articulate the needs and desires, to organize the dispersion experienced, and to tie action to moral principles of social responsibility. Reflection and self-reflection structure the human experiences of recognition. The correlation between the idea of freedom of individual choice and the idea of collective responsibility is the opportunity for the affirmation of each one and for the establishment of reciprocity between everyone. Within this context, the dialogue between Ricœur, Honneth and Sen proves to be very inspiring.
