Any account of the contentious relation between Paul Ricoeur and Jacques
Derrida cannot fail to be marked, initially at least, by a feeling of melan-
choly and a certain mournfulness. Not only because the two thinkers, having
recently passed away within only a few months of each other, will not have
the opportunity to contribute to or revisit the various debates in which they
jointly participated for approximately fifty years. But also because, even when
they were alive, most of their public encounters could be described, at best,
as missed opportunities of a fruitful dialogue. Hence a sense of sorrowfulness
with respect to the distance separating deconstruction and hermeneutics, those
two most influential streams of contemporary European thought.
