Paul Ricoeur by Karl Simms( )

40 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this guide, Karl Simms explores Ricoeur's most influential ideas, touching upon such concepts as good and evil, psychoanalysis, hermeneutics, metaphor, narrative, ethics, politics and justice. Crucially, he also places these ideas in context and looks at their continuing impact, in this way introducing important trends in contemporary thought. Throughout this volume, the author prepares us for our own reading of Ricoeur's work, and this culminates in an extensively annotated guide to his major publications."--Jacket
Ricoeur and Lacan by Karl Simms( )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first comparative study of the work of the philosopher Paul Ricoeur and the psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan. The book explores the conflict that arises between the two thinkers from their differing views of language, the unconscious and ethics: Ricoeur's universalist stance draws on a phenomenological reading of Kant, whereas Lacan's is a relativist position, derived from a psychoanalytic reading of Freud and de Sade. Ricoeur and Lacan gives a full critical overview of the work of both figures, tracing the origins and development of their principal ideas, and identifying key similarities and differences. The book identifies and explores the key philosophical influences upon their work: Descartes; Kant; Saussure; Husserl; Freud; Marcel; Jakobson. It gives an original perspective upon the development of ethics within Continental philosophy, providing clear and cogent analysis. Finally, it evaluates the importance of Ricoeur and Lacan in the development of ethical and political theory since the 1980s, with particular reference to the work of Slavoj Zizek. Not only a valuable and original addition to the literature on two major thinkers, Ricoeur and Lacon is also an important study of contemporary Continental ethics."--Jacket
Hans-Georg Gadamer by Karl Simms( Book )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hans-Georg Gadamer's theory of hermeneutics is one of the most important modern theories of reading, offering both a framework for understanding the practice and a method for its interpretation. In this clear and comprehensive guide to Gadamer's thought, Karl Simms presents an overview of his life and works, outlining his importance to phenomenological theory and its place in literary studies explains and puts into context his key ideas, including the importance of 'symbol' and 'festival' to his work on beauty provides a guide to the practical application of Gadamer's thought to the interpretation of texts presents a useful glossary of relevant terms and a section suggesting further reading. With a significance that crosses disciplinary boundaries from literary theory and philosophy through to cultural studies and media, Gadamer's pioneering work on hermeneutic theory remains of crucial importance to the study of texts in the humanities."--

Being played : Gadamer and philosophy's hidden dynamic by Jeremy Sampson( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are we being played? Is our understanding of the traditionally fixed and static concepts of philosophy based on an oversimplification? This book explores some of the theories of the self since Descartes, together with the rationalism and the empiricism that sustain these ideas, and draws some startling conclusions using Gadamer's philosophical study of play as its starting point. Gadamer's ludic theory, Sampson argues, reveals a dynamic of play that exists at the deepest level of philosophy. It is this dynamic that could provide a solution in relation to the Gadamer/Habermas hermeneutics debate and the Gadamer/Derrida relativism debate, together with a theory of totality."--
