Abstract

Most scholars point out that Ricoeur's itinerary ends with a "phenomenology of the capable human being". In this paper, I will try to propose a different hypothesis and explain why Ricoeur's last writings can be considered the starting point of a 'second Copernican revolution within phenomenology. A revolution of both method (from the analytic to the a-logical) and contents (from the theme of intersubjectivity to the theme of 'giving' and loving), which, already in the Preface of 'Le volontaire et l'involontaire', Ricoeur wished could follow after the 'first revolution' of the reflexive phenomenology: a 'hermeneutic poetic phenomenology' that develops the project that the early Ricoeur had drafted, but not completed in the 1950s. This is the project of a 'Poetics of the Gift', in which in hidden, in my opinion, the fecundity of Ricoeurian philosophy and the possibility for it to become paradigmatic for the philosophy to come
