La destination communautaire de l’interprétation, le De doctrina christiana d’Augustin

Dialogue 45 (2):233-256 (2006)

Abstract
Le bien-fondé de l’herméneutique dont Augustin jette les bases dans son De doctrina christiana est d’ordre communautaire, plus qu’épistémologique. Aussi bien, les règles qui s’y formulent ont juridiction au-delà du seul domaine du sémiotique : elles s’appliquent, de manière égale et même isomorphe, comme je le postulerai, à l’univers des rapports sociaux. Plus fondamentalement, ces règles veulentprésider à l’économie du désir, dans laquelle le sémiotique et le social trouvent leur origine commune et, surtout, le principe de leur organisation harmonieuse. J’en ferai la démonstration en analysant l’image du «voyage vers la patrie» (peregrinatio ad patriam).In the De doctrina christiana Augustine lays the foundations of a type of hermeneutics more community oriented than epistemological. Likewise, the rules he formulates have jurisdiction beyond the sole domain of semiotics; as I shall argue, they are applicable, in like (even congruent) manner, to the world of social relations. More fundamentally, these rules are intended to moderate an economy of desire, in which semiotics and social relations find a common origin and, above all, the principles of their harmonious organization. I shall demonstrate these ideas through an analysis of the image of “the voyage towards the homeland” (peregrinatio ad patriam)
