Additional Book Details

In Reading Ricoeur, fourteen well-known scholars interpret, evaluate, and criticize the works of Paul Ricoeur, one of the twentieth century's most important and far-reaching philosophers. The contributors discuss Ricoeur's entire philosophical career: from his existentialist-phenomenology of the 1940s and '50s; his hermeneutics and critique of structuralism in the 1960s and '70s; his narrative and moral philosophy of the 1980s; his political and legal philosophy of the 1990s; his recent work on memory, forgiveness, and recognition; as well as his enduring interests in religious language and the problem of evil. The contributors not only explain the central concepts and structures of Ricoeur's philosophy, but they also bring him into dialogue with his contemporaries, including Sartre, Heidegger, Gadamer, Habermas, Rawls, and Lyotard. Reading Ricoeur demonstrates the central role of Paul Ricoeur in the development of twentieth-century philosophy.
