Time and narrative by Paul Ricœur( )

7 editions published between 1984 and 2012 in English and held by 384 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

Hermeneutics by Paul Ricœur( Book )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Ricoeurʹs contribution to the theory of interpretation, or hermeneutics, is considerable: he ranks among the masters of this discipline alongside Schleiermacher, Dilthey, Heidegger and Gadamer. In addition to major works like The Conflict of Interpretations, he wrote many articles and shorter texts which deserve to be discovered and rediscovered. These allow us to gain a deeper understanding of the development of his work over time and to appreciate the full range of his contribution. Some of the texts examine the nature of metaphor while others guide the reader through the many challenges of the hermeneutic problem--from the symbol to the text, then to the text as action, taking full account of the ethical implications. Here one encounters Ricoeurʹs reflections on the future of hermeneutics and his abiding concern to explore the relations between hermeneutics and analytical philosophy."--Back cover
Memory, history, forgetting by Paul Ricœur( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 121 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
Philosophical anthropology by Paul Ricœur( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is it to be human? This question lies behind the so-called "human sciences," but these disciplines are scattered among many different departments and hold up a cracked mirror to humankind. This is why, in the view of Paul Ricoeur, we need to develop a philosophical anthropology, one that has a much older history but still offers many untapped resources. This appeal to a specifically philosophical approach to questions regarding what it is to be human led Ricoeur to enter into dialogue with other disciplines and approaches, such as psychoanalysis, history, sociology, anthropology, linguistics and the philosophy of language, in order to offer an up-to-date reflection on what he saw as the fundamental issues. For there is clearly not a simple, single answer to the question "what is it to be human?" Ricoeur therefore takes up the complexity of this question in terms of the tensions he sees between the "voluntary" and the "involuntary," "acting" and "suffering," "autonomy" and "vulnerability," "capacity" and "fragility," and "identity" and "otherness." The texts brought together in this volume provide an overall view of the development of Ricoeur's philosophical thinking on the question of what it is to be human, from his early 1939 lecture on "Attention" to his remarks on receiving the Kluge Prize in 2004, a few months before his death

Thinking biblically : exegetical and hermeneutical studies by André Lacocque( Book )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

LaCocque's commentaries employ a historical-critical method that takes into account archaeological, philological, and historical research. LaCocque includes in his essays historical information about the dynamic tradition of reading Scripture, opening his exegesis to developments and enrichments subsequent to the production of the original literary text. Ricoeur also takes into account the relation between the texts and the historical communities that read and interpreted them, but he broadens his scope to include philosophical speculation. His commentaries highlight the metaphorical structure of the passages and how they have served as catalysts for philosophical thinking from the Greeks to the modern age
Time and narrative by Paul Ricœur( Book )

6 editions published between 1984 and 1990 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Time and Narrativebuilds on Paul Ricoeur's earlier analysis, inThe 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. "This work, in my view, puts the whole problem of narrative, not to mention philosophy of history, on a new and higher plane of discussion."Hayden White,History and Theory"Superb. . . . A fine point of entrance into the work of one of the eminent thinkers of the present intellectual age."Joseph R. Gusfield,Contemporary Sociology
The course of recognition by Paul Ricœur( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recognition, though it figures profoundly in our understanding of objects and persons, identity and ideas, has never before been the subject of a single, sustained philosophical inquiry. This work, by one of contemporary philosophy's most distinguished voices, pursues recognition through its various philosophical guises and meanings - and, through the "course of recognition," seeks to develop nothing less than a proper hermeneutics of mutual recognition."--Jacket
Memory, history, forgetting by Paul Ricur( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Firstly, Paul Ricoeur takes a phenomenological approach to memory. He then addresses recent work by historians by reopening the question of the nature and truth of historical knowledge. Finally, he describes the necessity of forgetting as a condition for the possibility of remembering

The just by Paul Ricœur( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member 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."--Jacket
Time and narrative by Paul Ricœur( Book )

5 editions published between 1985 and 1999 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In volume 1 of this three-volume work, Paul Ricoeur examined the relations between time and narrative in historical writing. Now, in volume 2, he examines these relations in fiction and theories of literature. Ricoeur treats the question of just how far the Aristotelian concept of "plot" in narrative fiction can be expanded and whether there is a point at which narrative fiction as a literary form not only blurs at the edges but ceases to exist at all. Though some semiotic theorists have proposed all fiction can be reduced to an atemporal structure, Ricoeur argues that fiction depends on the reader's understanding of narrative traditions, which do evolve but necessarily include a temporal dimension. He looks at how time is actually expressed in narrative fiction, particularly through use of tenses, point of view, and voice. He applies this approach to three books that are, in a sense, tales about time: Virgina Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway; Thomas Mann's Magic Mountain; and Marcel Proust's Remembrance of Things Past. "Ricoeur writes the best kind of philosophy--critical, economical, and clear."--Eugen Weber, New York Times Book Review "A major work of literary theory and criticism under the aegis of philosophical hermenutics. I believe that . . . it will come to have an impact greater than that of Gadamer's Truth and Method--a work it both supplements and transcends in its contribution to our understanding of the meaning of texts and their relationship to the world."--Robert Detweiler, Religion and Literature "One cannot fail to be impressed by Ricoeur's encyclopedic knowledge of the subject under consideration. . . . To students of rhetoric, the importance of Time and Narrative . . . is all too evident to require extensive elaboration."--Dilip Parameshwar Gaonkar, Quarterly Journal of Speech
Living up to death by Paul Ricœur( Book )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<Div><div> 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.
