Phenomenology and the Sciences of Language PATRICK L. BOURGEOIS Loyola University, New Orleans An ambiguity emerges from Paul Ricoeur's recent writings on language. On the one hand, he considers it necessary today for phenomenology of language to take the sciences of language seriously; on the other hand, in all his writings on the sciences of language he appears to dismiss them rather than take them seriously. This ambiguity, arising from what Ricoeur considers a necessary confrontation between semiology and phenome- nology, can be further polarized: "The detour through the sciences of language is not something one can choose or not choose to make: it is essential to phenomenology today if it is to survive." I He seems to take the sciences of lan- guage so seriously that he considers semiology the en- trance to phenomenology. Semantics and phenomenology have their basis and support in semiology. He even wants to enter semiology and make the passage to semantics from semiology. He seems to consider phenomenology radi- cally challenged by the sciences of language. And for phe- nomenology to survive, it must confront the sciences of lan- guage in such a way as to answer this challenge, whatever it is.
