The rule of metaphor : Multi-disciplinary studies of the creation of meaning in language by Paul Ricœur ( Book )
75 editions published between 1975 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,213 WorldCat member 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 )
29 editions published between 1967 and 2007 in English and held by 1,243 WorldCat member 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

Freedom and nature; the voluntary and involuntary by Paul Ricœur ( Book )
22 editions published between 1966 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Freedom and Nature, the first part of Ricoeur's Philosophy of the Will, is an eidetics, carried out within carefully imposed phenomenological brackets. It seeks to deal with the essential structure of man's being-in-the-world, and so it suspends the distorting dimensions of existence, the bondage of passion, and the vision of innocence to which Ricoeur returns in his later writings. The result is a conception of man as an incarnate Cogito, which can make the polar unity of subject and object intelligible and provide a basic continuity for the various aspects of inquiry into man's being-in-the-world. --From publisher's description
Memory, history, forgetting by Paul Ricœur ( Book )
29 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 1,107 WorldCat member 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
What makes us think? : a neuroscientist and a philosopher argue about ethics, human nature, and the brain by Jean-Pierre Changeux ( Book )
9 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 1,006 WorldCat member 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
Paul Ricoeur the hermeneutics of action by Richard Kearney ( )
9 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Paul Ricoeur's work is of seminal importance to the development of hermeneutics, phenomenology and ideology critique in the human sciences. This major volume assembles leading scholars to address and explain the significance of this extraordinary body of work. Opening with three key essays from Ricoeur himself, the book offers a fascinating tour of his work ranging across topics such as the hermeneutics of action, narrative force, the other and deconstruction while discussing his work in the context of such contemporary figures as including Heidegger, L[ac]evinas, Arendt and Gadamer. Paul Rico
History and truth; [essays] by Paul Ricœur ( Book )
19 editions published between 1965 and 2007 in English and French and held by 980 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hermeneutics and the human sciences : essays on language, action, and interpretation by Paul Ricœur ( Book )
36 editions published between 1981 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 910 WorldCat member 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

to develop a hermeneutics of the self that will chart its epistemological path and ontological status. A second philosophical concern of the book is to differentiate two meanings of identity that will give rise to a dialectic of selfhood and sameness. Ricoeur is concerned generally to distinguish personal identity from, and place it in the context of, the idea of a universal subject or transcendental ego that seems to be required by ethics. The book pivots on a series of
