In this chapter, I demonstrate that Ricoeur's philosophical anthropology does not imply a simple opposition between embodiment as immanence and linguistic capacities that include the possibility of transcendence, but that human beings are hybrids, two-at-once. For Ricoeur's notion of narrative identity this means that it is not a facet of a person's identity, the story of our lives, but the identity of humans born into a world of language that precedes and envelops them.
