The aim of the article is to discuss the issue of narrative turn in the context of philosophy.
In order to present a specificity in philosophical narrative turn, I have characterized the
conception of “narrative identity” as a representation of the anti-metaphysical, which is
aiming to recognize the dynamic, open and unspecified character of self-identity. This will
indicate – according to P. Ricoeur’s philosophical standpoint – that the implications of
the idea of “narrative identity” are significant for philosophical anthropology and ethics.
