In his 1965 work on Freud, Paul Ricoeur states and reasons that the hermeneutic field, as a space of interpretations, is constitutively fragmented and is, at the same time, a structure for hosting different interpretations formed in language, as a place where different human perspectives on the nature of reality converge. This justification emerges from epistemological and ontological conditions. On the one hand, it is based on the idea of a real that is always surplus, which makes it inaccessible to a total knowledge, and that the topics of evil and time are paradigmatic figures in Ricoeur’s thought.
