Ricoeur and theology by Dan R Stiver( )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Ricoeur (1913-2005) has been heralded as one of the most notable philosophers of the twentieth century. Like a stone skipping across the philosophical pond, he would write a major work in one field, then move on to another. As a consequence, he is one of the most inter-disciplinary philosophers whose work not only brings together such areas as existentialism, phenomenology, hermeneutics, structuralism, psychoanalysis, metaphor, narrative, and political ethics, it bridges the gulf between Continental and Anglo-American philosophy. Despite the diversity one could identify continuing threads
Paul Ricœur and the task of political philosophy by Greg Johnson( )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in English and held by 1,084 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses the political philosophy of Paul Ricoeur. More precisely, it offers a <span style="font-style:italic;">sustained engagement with Ricoeur's political thought in a way that demonstrates both the significance of the political in his own thinking throughout his career, and how Ricoeur's understanding of the political offers something valuable to current discussions in political philosophy. A second goal is to begin to fill a gap in Ricoeur studies and situate his work on political ethics more fully in contemporary discussions about political thought. In this way, Ricoeur can be seen as a figure pertinent to recent trends in political philosophy that make political thinking more realistic to the conditions for political life. The various essays in the book move along intersecting but different trajectories. First, as some of these essays attest, the concept of the political is a pervasive theme that runs throughout Ricoeur's corpus. In this way a theme throughout the book examines this notion of the political, as well as how it relates to his more well known work in other areas. Second, and related, the historical understanding of perennial issues in political philosophy are most often updated by those standing in the lineage of those who have come before. As such, Ricoeur's hermeneutical orientation has moved him to engage contemporaries who attempt to "think forward" in various ways this tradition for current situations. Unlike most who engage in political thought, Ricoeur goes where others dare not, namely, to those who appear to be opponents but, as he shows, offer perspectives worth more consideration in the name of the best of political thinking. In this light, Ricoeur's hermeneutical orientation is again a unique framework for understanding the nature of political engagement, an orientation in what follows that highlights the ways that Ricoeur and a Ricoeurian perspective cross philosophical orientations to develop a unique understanding of political thought that is different. <br />

Theology after Ricoeur : new directions in hermeneutical theology by Dan R Stiver( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume Dan Stiver investigates the implications of Paul Ricoeur's hermeneutical philosophy for a genuine postmodern theology. Stiver not only provides a comprehensive interpretation of Ricoeur but also applies Ricoeur's hermeneutical theory to biblical interpretation and theology. Stiver is careful to situate Ricoeur's contributions in the Yale-Chicago debate and shows how Ricoeur's textual theory provides an alternative to both George Lindbeck, on the one hand, and deconstruction, on the other."--Jacket

Ideology and utopia in the twenty-first century : the surplus of meaning in Ricoeur's dialectical concept( Book )

6 editions published between 2019 and 2021 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edited work is spurred by the 30-year anniversary of the groundbreaking work by Paul Ricoeur, Lectures on Ideology and Utopia (1986)-and the 40-year anniversary of the original lectures (1975). Ricoeur took these concepts that continue to be enormously important in social and political analysis and connected them in a uniquely intricate dance. The ensuing interplay of these concepts provides a framework for a more deft and subtle evaluation than is common. Little has been done to engage Ricoeur's skill in interpreting ideology and utopia or their creative tension, perhaps due to his significant contributions in other areas. When one combines Ricoeur's intricate analyses of ideology and utopia, however, with his contributions in other areas of philosophy such as hermeneutics, anthropology, embodiment, and philosophy of religion, one has fertile grounds for reflection in many directions. The essays in this book draw on these resources not only to engage the strengths and weaknesses of Ricoeur's original work, but they also expand his understanding in creative new directions such as the social imaginary, embodiment, gender theory, immigration, and extremist political rhetoric. The text will bring to the fore how this aspect of Ricoeur's work has significance for the wider twenty-first century political landscape. Just as his original work, this book provides much-needed resources for critique of each term, along with their relationship to one another, while recognizing the positive dimension of their function

The Cambridge companion to postmodern theology by Kevin J Vanhoozer( Book )

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

"Postmodernity allows for no absolutes and no essence. Yet theology is concerned with the absolute, the essential. How then does theology sit within postmodernity? Is postmodern theology possible, or is such a concept a contradiction in terms? Should theology bother about postmodernism or just get on with its own thing? Can it? Theologians have responded in many different ways to the challenges posed by theories of postmodernity. In this introductory guide to a complex area, editor Kevin J. Vanhoozer addresses the issue head on in a lively survey of what talk about God might mean in a postmodern age, and vice versa. The book then offers examples of different types of contemporary theology in relation to postmodernity, while the second part examines the key Christian doctrines in postmodern perspective" -- page 4 of cover
