G. Aranzueque, Heterogeneidades sin síntesis

Heterogeneidades sin síntesis. Del hombre falible al doliente
Gabriel Aranzueque

Is it really possible to tell the suffered pain? What kind of storytelling could give an account of the uniqueness of the sorrow? The paper focuses on the description of the fragility of the human, as well as on the problems posed by the access to the symbolic field, in Paul Ricoeur’s theory. It particularly his notion of “plot” as described in Temps et récit: from the point of view of transitional justice processes, Ricoeur’s narrative seems unable to tell the singular person who suffers the pain, his irreducible difference and his possible – required maybe – silence.

Pain, sorrow, victim, narratives, history, silence.
