Example text

But neither is it a method that will begin from something like the doctrine of original sin as it appears in Christianity. Instead, Ricoeur argues we have to move back from such reflective expressions to the more spontaneous ones that underlie all such speculation and any such formulation. 15 We do remain at the level of a use of language, however, although since it is a use characterized by myths and symbols, so extended initial reflection on how to construe these categories is called for. Myth as Ricoeur understands it is not simply to be defined as a false story nor is it an explanation in the sense of modern science, although it does contribute to our understanding through the explanatory significance of its 'symbolic function' which uncovers and even can be said to reveal now people have understood themselves to be bound to what they consider to be sacred.

Beyond this desert of criticism, he maintains, 'we wish to be called again' (SE, 349) and this, he argues, calls for an approach 'that respects the original enigma of the symbols, that lets itself be taught by them, but that, beginning from them, promotes the meaning, forms the meaning in the full responsibility of autonomous thought' (SE, 349-50). This will be possible because these symbols are already part of language and hence not radically alien to philosophical thought. What is more, all symbolic language already includes an element of interpretation, hence s&mething like an incipient hermeneutical theory, one that is capable of exercising a critical function yet that still recognizes the myth as myth and the symbol as symbol.

Moreover, as a philosopher he can only appeal to Freud's texts, which are there for anyone to read, not to the practice of the analytic approach as experienced either by an analyst or a patient. What is most important is that Freud himself poses a philosophical problem in that 'psychoanalysis conflicts with every other global interpretation of the nature of man because it is itself an interpretation of culture' (FP, xii), so already Ricoeur's focus has moved beyond his initial question of the status of the involuntary.
