SILVA AREVALO, Eduardo. Paul Ricoeur y los desplazamientos de la hermenéutica. Teol. vida [online]. 2005, vol.46, n.1-2, pp.167-205. ISSN 0049-3449.

The article present's Ricoeur's contribution to the hermeneutic philosophy, on the grounds of some movements brought about by his thought. The first three movements focus on those aspects which affected the traditions to which the author feels indebted. First, the reflexive tradition deriving from Descartes, which in the 70's was updated by its merge with psychoanalysis and structuralism, putting to quiestion the subject which turns into a cogito 'wounded' after the battle. Second, the objections to the hermeneutic tradition fought from two sides; critical theory and descontruction. In the third place, Ricoeur's own movements regarding phenomenology: the introduction of the linguistic shifts into philosophy and the introduction of the hermeneutic in the phenomenological method. These three movements ­reflexive, hermeneutic and phenomenological­ set the grounds for the 4th section, which looks at the fundamental acquisition of his hermeneutic philosophy which constitutes a unique contribution to the disciplines ­theology among them­ which rely on interpretation: going from the author's hermeneutics to the resder's hermeneutics who actualizes the text as he reads it. Finally, in the 5th section some of the consequences of such movements are discussed stating that Ricoeur's contribution opens an intermediary path between a unique and fixed sense and infinite senses beyond measure. His path allows to overcome the modern objectivism while keeping away from the postmodern relativism
