Gubman B.L., Anufrieva K.V. P. Ricoeur's Hermeneutics and Analytical Philosophy: the Problem of the Personal Narrative Self-Identity

Published in journal "Philosophy and Culture", 2015-9 in rubric "Hermeneutics", pages 1371-1382.

Resume: The paper is focused on P. Ricoeur's interpretation of the personal narrative self-identity problem developed within the framework of his hermeneutical phenomenology and his understanding of the unity of identity and selfhood in the process of creating a reflexive image of 'Self' that appeared in the dialogue with analytical philosophy. Based on that, the authors of the article discuss particular features of Ricoeur's polemics with different versions of the objectivist approaches to personality and personality expression in language acts, actor and action from the point of view of semantics and pragmatics that were created within the framework of analytic philosophy and in fact led to some kind of liquidation of 'Self' desite the unique unity and timely existence of Self. In their research the authors have appliedthe hermeneutical strategy to interpreting the theme as well as a wide range of methods that are used in historical and philosophical analysis. The novelty of the research is caused, first and foremost, by the fact that the authors demonstrate peculiarities of the constructive dialogue that was established by Ricoeur with the leading representatives of contemporary analytical philosophy in the process of creating his own personal narrative self-identity doctrine. The program of the synthesis of analytical philosophy and hermeneutics offered by Ricoeur may be evaluated as a sufficiently valid and realizable approach when applied to the problem of the narrative identity as the expression of personal life unity.

Keywords: personality, identity, Self, selfhood, action, event, pragmatics, semantics, personalism, narrative identity, hermeneutics
