Time and narrative by Paul Ricœur( )

17 editions published between 1984 and 2021 in English and held by 319 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

Hermeneutics by Paul Ricœur( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 145 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 127 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 )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 85 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

On psychoanalysis by Paul Ricœur( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Ricoeur's Freud and Philosophy was a major reinterpretation of psychoanalysis and its philosophical significance, but Ricoeur also wrote many important articles on similar themes. This volume makes available some of his key writings on Freud and psychoanalysis: together with Freud and Philosophy, they form a major part of his philosophical legacy. What kind of science is psychoanalysis? What kind of truth does it offer and what kind of proof does it provide? What does the concrete practice of psychoanalysis consist of? What can it tell us about creativity and the work of art? What is its place within our culture and how can it transform culture? What is the role of narrative in psychoanalysis? Ricoeur reading Freud: this could have been the title of this volume, in which the focus is on the actual work of Freud and not on subsequent commentaries. An open reading of intellectual integrity. A critical reading which shuns definitive positions. A reading to understand Freud. -- Publisher description
Time and narrative by Paul Ricœur( Book )

11 editions published between 1984 and 1990 in English and held by 41 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
Time and narrative by Paul Ricœur( Book )

15 editions published between 1985 and 1999 in English and held by 26 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

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

5 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collaboration sets the words of a distinguished biblical scholar, Andre LaCocque, and those of a leading philosopher, Paul Ricoeur, in dialogue around six crucial passages from the Old Testament: the story of Adam and Eve; the commandment "thou shalt not kill"; the valley of dry bones passage from Ezekiel; Psalm 22; the Song of Songs; and the naming of God in Exodus 3:14. Commenting on these texts, LaCocque and Ricoeur provide a wealth of new insights into the meaning of the different genres of the Old Testament as these made their way into and were transformed by the New Testament
Living up to death by Paul Ricœur( )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 15 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. He also left behind a number of unfinished projects that are gathered here and translated into English for the first time. Living Up to Death consists of one major essay and nine fragments. Composed in 1996, the essay is the kernel 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 exp

The course of recognition by Paul Ricœur( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 13 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

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
