Starting from Ricœur’s last meditations on death, time, and eternity, we first seek to show the difficulties of Whitehead’s idea of a memory of God who would be “the great monad”, or the Hegelian recapitulation. The navigation then reverses towards the insurmountable plurality of temporalities. In the wake of Marielle Macé’s work on style, we will seek not only in narrativity, which is itself a form of resistance to totalizations, but in all genres and forms of language, the infinitely varied ways of dealing with time. If we agree to reintegrate the Ricœurian studies of biblical literature into the philosophical field, we will resituate biblical narrative, itself inseparable from the prescriptive of the Torah which is always already there, in its textual intersection with other biblical literary genres, the broken time of the prophetic irruption, the eternal everydayness of wisdom literature, the metaphorical games of the hymn, etc.
