The rule of metaphor : Multi-disciplinary studies of the creation of meaning in language by Paul Ricœur ( Book )
86 editions published between 1975 and 2008 in 9 languages and held by 1,269 libraries worldwide
"Paul Ricoeur is widely regarded as one of the most distinguished philosophers of our time. In The Rule of Metaphor this intellectual giant of our age seeks 'to show how language can extend itself to its very limits, forever discovering new resonances within itself.' Recognizing the fundamental power of language in constructing the world we perceive, Ricoeur reveals the processes by which linguistic imagination creates and recreates meaning through metaphor. Taking further his acclaimed analysis of the power of myth and symbol, Ricoeur invites us to explore the many layers of language in order to rediscover what that meaning might be. A fruitful and insightful study of how language affects our understanding of the world, this book is also an indispensable work for all those seeking some kind of meaning in uncertain times."--BOOK JACKET.

Husserl: an analysis of his phenomenology by Paul Ricœur ( Book )
21 editions published between 1967 and 2007 in English and held by 1,160 libraries worldwide
Paul Ricoeur was one of the foremost interpreters and translators of Edmund Husserl's philosophy. These nine essays present Ricoeur's interpretation of the most important of Husserl's writings, with emphasis on his philosophy of consciousness rather than his work in logic. In Ricoeur's philosophy, phenomenology and existentialism came of age and these essays provide an introduction to the Husserlian elements which most heavily influenced his own philosophical position.
What makes us think? : a neuroscientist and a philosopher argue about ethics, human nature, and the brain by Jean-Pierre Changeux ( Book )
19 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 1,152 libraries worldwide
Will understanding our brains help us to know our minds? Or is there an unbridgeable distance between the work of neuroscience and the workings of human consciousness? In an exchange between neuroscientist Jean-Pierre Changeux and philosopher Paul Ricoeur, this book explores the fraught territory between these divergent approaches--and comes to a deeper, more complex perspective on human nature. Ranging across diverse traditions, from phrenology to PET scans and from Spinoza to Charles Taylor, this book revolves around a central issue: the relation between the facts (or "what is") of science and the prescriptions (or "what ought to be") of ethics. Changeux and Ricoeur bring an unusual depth of engagement and breadth of knowledge to each other's subject. In doing so, they make two often hostile disciplines speak to one another in surprising and instructive ways--and speak with all the subtlety and passion of conversation at its best.--From publisher description.
Memory, history, forgetting by Paul Ricœur ( Book )
41 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in 7 languages and held by 1,076 libraries worldwide
"Why do major historical events such as the Holocaust occupy the forefront of the collective consciousness, while profound moments such as the Armenian genocide, the McCarthy era, and France's role in North Africa stand distantly behind? Is it possible that history "overly remembers" some events at the expense of others? A landmark work in philosophy, Paul Ricoeur's Memory, History, Forgetting examines this reciprocal relationship between remembering and forgetting, showing how it affects both the perception of historical experience and the production of historical narrative." "Memory, History, Forgetting provides the crucial link between Ricoeur's Time and Narrative and Oneself as Another and his recent reflections on ethics and the problems of responsibility and representation."--Jacket.

Oneself as another by Paul Ricœur ( Book )
33 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 1,050 libraries worldwide
Paul Ricoeur has been hailed as one of the most important thinkers of the century. Oneself as Another, his greatest work to date, substantiates this position. Ricoeur focuses here on the concept of personal identity, a major theme of contemporary philosophy. Running throughout the book are three key issues: the concept of self; the notion of identity or sameness; and the relation to otherness, or to that which is not self. In Oneself as Another, Ricoeur's primary aim is.
Hermeneutics and the human sciences : essays on language, action, and interpretation by Paul Ricœur ( Book )
26 editions published between 1981 and 2009 in English and French and held by 882 libraries worldwide
"This is a collection in translation of essays by Paul Ricoeur which presents a comprehensive view of his philosophical hermeneutics, its relation to the views of his predecessors in the tradition and its consequences for the social sciences. The volume has three parts. The studies in the first part examine the history of hermeneutics, its central themes and the outstanding issues it has to confront. In Part II, Ricoeur's own current, constructive position is developed. A concept of the text is formulated as the implications of the theory are pursued into the domains of sociology, psychoanalysis and history. Many of the essays appear here in English for the first time; the editor's introduction brings out their background in Ricoeur's thought and the continuity of his concerns. The volume will be of great importance for those interested in hermeneutics and Ricoeur's contribution to it, and will demonstrate how much his approach offers to a number of disciplines." -- Book cover.

The just by Paul Ricœur ( Book )
23 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 822 libraries worldwide
"Gathered under the title The Just, the essays represent a sustained reflection on the relation between the concept of the judicial - as imbedded in written laws, tribunals, judges, and verdicts - and the philosophical concept of right, situated between moral theory and politics. In political philosophy, Ricoeur argues, the question of right is obscured by the haunting presence of historical evil. In a philosophy of right, on the other hand, the leading theme is peace."--BOOK JACKET.

Living up to death by Paul Ricœur ( Book )
17 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 745 libraries worldwide
When French philosopher Paul Ricoeur died in 2005, he bequeathed to the world a highly regarded, widely influential body of work which established him as one of the greatest thinkers of our time. He also left behind a number of unfinished projects that are gathered here and translated into English for the first time. Living Up to Death consists of one major essay and nine fragments. Composed in 1996, the essay is the kernel of an unrealized book on the subject of mortality. Likely inspired by his wife's approaching death, it examines not one's own passing but one's experience of others dying.
