Paul Ricoeur on Speaking - Dictionary of Arguments

II 25
Speaking/Writing/Ricoeur: (...) the transition from speaking to writing has ist conditions in the theory of >discourse
(...), especially in the dialectic of event and meaning (...) >Discourse/Ricoeur, >Dialogue/Ricoeur.
Writing/Plato/Ricoeur: [Plato criticized] writing as a kind of alienation (...).
Writing/Ricoeur: What happens in writing is the full manifestation of something that is in a virtual state, something nascent and inchoate, in living speech, namely the detachment of meaning
from the event. But this detachment is not such as to cancel the fundamental structure of discourse (...).
The semantic autonomy of the text which now appears is still governed by the dialectic of event and meaning. Moreover, it may be said that this dialectic is made obvious and explicit by writing. >Writing/Ricoeur.
II 34
Speaking/reference/Ricoeur: in spoken discourse the ultimate criterion for the referential scope of what we say is the possibility of showing the thing referred to as a member of the situation common to both speaker and hearer. This situation surrounds the dialogue, and its landmarks can all be shown by a gesture or by pointing a finger. Or it can be designated in an ostensive manner by the discourse itself through the oblique reference of those indicators which include the demonstratives, the adverbs of time and place, and the tenses of the verb. Finally they can be described in such a definite way that one, and only one, thing may be identified within the common framework of reference. >Writing/Ricoeur, >Literature/Ricoeur, >Reference/Ricoeur.
