From text to action by Paul Ricœur( )

12 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in English and held by 583 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
The imaginary institution of society by Cornelius Castoriadis( Book )

12 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is one of the most original and important works of contemporary European thought. First published in France in 1975, it is the major theoretical work of one of the foremost thinkers in Europe today. Castoriadis offers a brilliant and far-reaching analysis of the unique character of the social-historical world and its relations to the individual, to language, and to nature. He argues that most traditional conceptions of society and history overlook the essential feature of the social-historical world, namely that this world is not articulated once and for all but is in each case the creation of the society concerned. In emphasizing the element of creativity, Castoriadis opens the way for rethinking political theory and practice in terms of the autonomous and explicit self-institution of society
Oneself as another by Paul Ricœur( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 2021 in 3 languages and held by 147 WorldCat member 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 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 "who" questions that, as Ricoeur points out, we are forced to address when we judge a person's character or behavior: Who is speaking? Who is the agent? Who is the narrator? To whom are good or bad actions attributed?" "Applying the tools of analytic philosophy to these questions, Ricoeur discovers a sense of "self" that is not personal and holds for all grammatical persons. A notion of solicitude is central here, for by showing that there are nonpersonal aspects of the self that require solicitude, he indicates the direction from the self to the other and clarifies moral problems that appear to founder on the issue of identity. His identification of the nonpersonal concept of the self with the concept of the other thus exposes the key to the Moral Law." "Oneself as Another expands on the Gifford Lectures that Ricoeur gave in Edinburgh in 1986 and published in French in 1990. It will be widely discussed among philosophers, literary critics, historians, and social scientists."--Jacket
Memory, history, forgetting by Paul Ricœur( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

And forgetting, and how this dynamic becomes problematic in light of events once present but now past, will inspire academic dialogue and response but also holds great appeal to educated general readers in search of both method for and insight from considering the ethical ramifications of modern events. ... It is indeed a master work, not only in Ricoeur's own vita but also in contemporary European philosophy."--Library Journal "Ricoeur writes the best kind of philosophy-critical, economical, and clear."--New York Times Book Review

Time and narrative by Paul Ricœur( Book )

8 editions published between 1984 and 1990 in English and held by 20 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.Ricoeur's aim here is to explicate as fully as possible the hypothesis that has governed his inquiry, namely, that the effort of thinking at work in every narrative configuration is completed in a refiguration of temporal experience. To this end, he sets himself the central task of determing how far a poetics of narrative can be said to resolve the "aporias"the doubtful or problematic elementsof time. Chief among these aporias are the conflicts between the phenomenological sense of time (that experienced or lived by the individual) and the cosmological sense (that described by history and physics) on the one hand and the oneness or unitary nature of time on the other. In conclusion, Ricoeur reflects upon the inscrutability of time itself and attempts to discern the limits of his own examination of narrative discourse."As in his previous works, Ricoeur labors as an imcomparable mediator of often estranged philosophical approaches, always in a manner that compromises neither rigor nor creativity."Mark Kline Taylor,Christian Century"In the midst of two opposing contemporary optionseither to flee into ever more precious readings . . . or to retreat into ever more safe readings . . . Ricoeur's work offers an alternative option that is critical, wide-ranging, and conducive to new applications."Mary Gerhart,Journal of Religion
