La Métaphore vive

By Paul Ricœur

Pour comprendre toutes les implications de los angeles métaphore - en fait de l. a. rhétorique et des «figures» dans le langage -, ces huit études suivent une development qui va du mot à los angeles word, puis au discours.Des origines à nos jours, los angeles rhétorique a pris le mot pour unité de référence. En ce sens, l. a. métaphore n'est que déplacement et extension du sens des mots.Dès lors que l. a. métaphore est replacée dans le cadre de l. a. word, elle n'est plus une dénomination déviante mais un énoncé impertinent. Emile Benveniste est ici l'auteur qui permet à l'analyse de franchir un pas décisif, avec l'opposition entre une sémiotique, pour laquelle le mot n'est qu'un signe dans le code lexical, et une sémantique, où los angeles word porte l. a. signification complète minimale.En passant de l. a. word au discours proprement dit (poème, récit, discours philosophique), on quitte le niveau sémantique pour le niveau herméneutique. Ici, ce qui est en query n'est plus l. a. forme de l. a. métaphore (comme pour l. a. rhétorique), ni son sens (comme pour los angeles sémantique), mais sa référence, c'est-à-dire los angeles «réalité» en dehors du langage. l. a. métaphore, en dernier ressort, est pouvoir de redécrire l. a. réalité, mais selon une pluralité de modes de discours qui vont de l. a. poésie à l. a. philosophie. Dans tous les cas, nous sommes fondés à parler de «vérité métaphorique».

On peut pourtant se demander si cette référence à los angeles technological know-how ne fait pas tomber dans le piège qu'on prétend éviter : à tout le moins un lexique d'initiés offre-t-il en philosophie une recette d'imagination méthodique.
