Ricoeur

“What fails is not thinking, in any acceptation of the term, but the impulse—or to put it a better way the hubris—that impels our thinking to posit itself as the master of meaning. Thinking encounters this failure not only on account of the enigma of evil but also when time, escaping our will to mastery, surges forth on the side of what, in one way or another, is the true master of meaning” (Ricoeur, Time and Narrative, vol. 3, p. 261)
