ABSTRACT
Through the notion of narrative identity, Paul Ricoeur tries to show how the relationship between identity and otherness implies a dialectic between the own and the alien, present in all understanding. Emmanuel Levinas's position rejects this conception of otherness. He considers the other as a limit of identity, not the condition of possibility. Thus, we analyze the response offered by Ricoeur in Oneself as another concerning the status of the otherness of the other and its relation to the constitution of self identity.

    In what sense is the self, as Ricoeur conceives it, a vulnerable self? We shall argue that vulnerability, as far as it concerns the self, can be approached on three levels: reflexive, of human abilities and ontological. However, if Ricoeur helps us think human fragility and thus define a new...
