Paul Ricoeur’s Reading Of Mimesis
Mohammad Hossein Khosravi *, Masoud Olia
Abstract:   (7434 Views)
This essay tries to discuss and analyse Paul Ricoeur’s reading of mimesis, which is among the most important and most discussed concepts in the history
of philosophy of art, and to show how, beginning with Aristotelian concept of mimesis and attending to its associate concepts, i.e. mythos and praxis, he
expands its field of significance and puts it in a reciprocal and enriching relation with the concepts of time and narrative and gives new meanings to the act of narration. Accordingly, it will be shown that Ricoeur’s work on the narrative can provide a new way to think this relation in the light of  phenomenology and hermeneutics.
This essay, based on the descriptiveanalytical method, is divided in two parts. In the first part, the significant elements of the conceptual network which forms the context of Ricoeur’s discussion of mimesis, namely Aristotelian mimesis, narrative understanding and Augustinian notion of time, are considered and analysed, and in the second part, what Ricoeur means by mimesis and its threefold moments, mimesis1, mimesis2 and mimesis3, is elaborated. It will
be shown that these three moments of mimesis are correspondent to threefold concepts of prefiguration, configuration and refiguration, and Ricoeur’s conception of mimesis can give new significations to the Aristotelian concept of mimesis and phenomenological concepts of time, temporality and act by linking them.
Keywords: mimesis, act, praxis, poiesis, emplotment, narrative, mythos, time
