Memory, history, forgetting by Paul Ricœur( Book )

110 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 2,172 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."--Jacket
History and truth by Paul Ricœur( Book )

130 editions published between 1955 and 2007 in 7 languages and held by 1,850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Investigates the antinomy between history and truth, or between historicity and meaning. This book argues that history has meaning insofar as it approaches universality and system, but has no meaning insofar as this universality violates the singularity of individuals' lives
The rule of metaphor : Multi-disciplinary studies of the creation of meaning in language by Paul Ricœur( Book )

76 editions published between 1975 and 2008 in English and Multiple languages and held by 1,812 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."--Jacket
Living up to death by Paul Ricœur( )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,811 WorldCat member 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. ... [book title] consists of one major essay and nine fragments. Composed in 1996, the essay is the kernal 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. ... [book title] is a moving testimony to Ricoeur's willingness to confront his own mortality with serious questions, a touching insouciance, and hope for the future."--Jacket
Oneself as another by Paul Ricœur( Book )

95 editions published between 1990 and 2021 in 6 languages and held by 1,744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Freud and philosophy : an essay on interpretation by Paul Ricœur( Book )

29 editions published between 1970 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first part of Freud and philosophy, "Problematic" presents a profound and clear theory of signification, symbol, and interpretation. The second part, "A reading of Freud," is required reading for anyone seriously interested in psychoanalysis. The third section includes a thoroughly audacious interpretation and criticism of Freud and a presentation of Ricoeur's own theory of symbol--particularly religious symbol--which places the study at the center of the debate over the sense of myth."--Book jacket
What makes us think? : a neuroscientist and a philosopher argue about ethics, human nature, and the brain by Jean-Pierre Changeux( Book )

29 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and French and held by 1,380 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

24 editions published between 1965 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From text to action by Paul Ricœur( Book )

38 editions published between 1986 and 2008 in English and held by 1,305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book will be useful to those coming to the field of hermeneutics for the first time, as well as those already familiar with Ricoeur's work. Paul Ricoeur (1913-2005) was Professor of Philosophy at the University of Chicago and the University of Paris X, Nanterre, and a leading figure in twentieth-century French philosophy. "From Text to Action" provides an invaluable companion to Ricoeur's classic text, "The Conflict of Interpretations". Here he further develops his general theory of interpretation in relation to his own philosophical background and influences: Hegel, Husserl, Gadamer and Weber. This is a hugely important work from a key figure in contemporary philosophy that will be of interest to those starting out in the field of hermeneutics, as well as those already familiar with Ricoeur's work."The Continuum Impacts" are seminal works by the finest minds in contemporary thought, including Adorno, Badiou, Derrida, Heidegger and Deleuze. They are works of such power that they changed the philosophical and cultural landscape when they were first published and continue to resonate today. They represent landmark texts in the fields of philosophy, popular culture, politics and theology
Freedom and nature : the voluntary and involuntary by Paul Ricœur( Book )

67 editions published between 1949 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 1,288 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
The conflict of interpretations by Paul Ricœur( Book )

53 editions published between 1974 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Husserl : an analysis of his phenomenology by Paul Ricœur( Book )

41 editions published between 1967 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,247 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
Time and narrative by Paul Ricœur( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 1,235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first two volumes of this work, Paul Ricoeur examined the relations between time and narrative in historical writing, fiction and theories of literature. This final volume, a comprehensive reexamination and synthesis of the ideas developed in volumes 1 and 2, stands as Ricoeur's most complete and satisfying presentation of his own philosophy
The religious significance of atheism by Alasdair C MacIntyre( Book )

Hermeneutics and the human sciences : essays on language, action, and interpretation by Paul Ricœur( Book )

60 editions published between 1981 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,125 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

Time and narrative by Paul Ricœur( )

35 editions published between 1968 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Time and Narrative builds on Paul Ricoeur's earlier analysis, in The Rule of Metaphor, of semantic innovation at the level of the sentence. Ricoeur here examines the creation of meaning at the textual level, with narrative rather than metaphor as the ruling concern. Ricoeur finds a "healthy circle" between time and narrative: time is humanized to the extent that it portrays temporal experience. Ricoeur proposes a theoretical model of this circle using Augustine's theory of time and Aristotle's theory of plot and, further, develops an original thesis of the mimetic function of narrative. He concludes with a comprehensive survey and critique of modern discussions of historical knowledge, understanding, and writing from Aron and Mandelbaum in the late 1930s to the work of the Annales school and that of Anglophone philosophers of history of the 1960s and 1970s.--
