Gilbert Vincent, "Exégèse, herméneutique, théologie. I. Entre philosophie et théologie : l’œuvre de Paul Ricœur," 183-215
Paul Ricœur’s work disturbs, as does any work that questions the customary classification of disciplines. Does this philosophical work make too much room for religion and theology? The reproach of “crypto-theology” against its author is unfair, since he never hides it. The strength of this reproach is indicative of a concept of laity different from that of the French legislator and which was not defended by the author himself. It also betrays a strange ignorance of the pragmatic and institutional conditions of all creative thinking. In order to better do justice to this work, to its disciplinary “departures” and to their possible cultural effects, we will use the notion of field rather than discipline. If applied to philosophy and theology, could it not help avoid such an antagonistic view of their relationship?
