Ricœur’s meeting with Greimas was not an ephemeral event but a discussion that spanned more than thirty years. Anne Henault traces the different stages of what Ricœur called his “love fight” with Greimas, perfectly illustrated in the poem by René Char: “Loyal opponents.” The qualities of the philosopher emerges in dialogue, the concern to advance reasoning in a rigorous way but also the effort to give to the speaker “the chance of his best argument.” Anne Henault recounts the labeling of structuralism as an “enemy” and the conquest of a “friendship” as mutually demanding but based on genuine intellectual convergences.
