This essay examines the Ricoeurian idea of narrative identity, focusing on the ethical tension which characterizes this concept and which seems to reveal a teleological dynamism intimately marking the adventure of subjectivity. The implications of such telos – which is both a gift and a task – progressively emerge through the chapters of Ricoeur’s book Oneself as Another highlighting a selfhood capable of attestation facing the manifold dialectical game with otherness. With regard to the original sense of this challenging existential narrative, Ricouer – as this article points out – manifests an agnostic philosophical reserve, the meaning of which deserves special attention.
