      Paul Ricoeur 1913 2005 is widely recognized as one of the most distinguished philosophers of the twentieth century In the course of his long career he wrote on a broad range of issues His books include a multi volume project on the philosophy of the will Freedom and Nature The Voluntary and the Involuntary 1950, Eng tr 1966 , Fallible Man 1960, Eng tr 1967 , and The Symbolism of Evil 1960, Eng tr 1970 a major study of Freud Freud and Philosophy An Essay on Interpretation 1965, Eng tr 1970 The Rule of Metaphor 1975, Eng tr 1977 Interpretation Theory Discourse and the Surplus of Meaning 1976 the three volume Time and Narrative 1983 85, Eng tr 1984 88 Lectures on Ideology and Utopia 1986 the published version of his Gifford lectures Oneself as Another 1990, Eng tr 1992 Memory, History, Forgetting 2000, Eng tr 2004 and The Course of Recognition 2004, Eng tr 2005 In addition to his books, Ricoeur published than 500 essays, many of which appear in collections in English History and Truth 1955, Eng tr 1965 Husserl An Analysis of His Phenomenology 1967 The Conflict of Interpretations Essays in Hermeneutics 1969, Eng tr 1974 Political and Social Essays 1974 Essays on Biblical Interpretation 1980 Hermeneutics and the Human Sciences 1981 From Text to Action 1986, Eng tr 1991 Figuring the Sacred Religion, Narrative, and Imagination 1995 The Just 1995, Eng tr 2000 On Translation 2004, Eng tr 2004 and Reflections on the Just 2001, Eng tr 2007.The major theme that unites his writings is that of a philosophical anthropology This anthropology, which Ricoeur came to call an anthropology of the capable human being, aims to give an account of the fundamental capabilities and vulnerabilities that human beings display in the activities that make up their lives Though the accent is always on the possibility of understanding the self as an agent responsible for its actions, Ricoeur consistently rejects any claim that the self is immediately transparent to itself or fully master of itself Self knowledge only comes through our relation to the world and our life with and among others in that world.In the course of developing his anthropology, Ricoeur made a major methodological shift His writings prior to 1960 were in the tradition of existential phenomenology But during the 1960s Ricoeur concluded that properly to study human reality he had to combine phenomenological description with hermeneutic interpretation For this hermeneutic phenomenology, whatever is intelligible is accessible to us in and through language and all deployments of language call for interpretation Accordingly, there is no self understanding that is not mediated by signs, symbols, and texts in the final analysis self understanding coincides with the interpretation given to these mediating terms Oneself as Another, 15, translation corrected This hermeneutic or linguistic turn did not require him to disavow the basic results of his earlier investigations It did, however, lead him not only to revisit them but also to see clearly their implications.

    • I ve finished the rule of metaphor a book whose conclusions re philosophy and metaphor are one must use a metaphor enlightening One can take from this work of philosophy the fact of the necessary failure of philosophy which is an effect of the failure of language, the inability of language to articulate even once the thing the speculative philosopher desires, attempts to articulate Metaphor is the conduit from the known to the unknown Metaphor always erases what it writes as it writes, leaving o [...]


    • I ve decided that Ricoeur is of a meta rhetorician, a philosopher of rhetoric in the sense that unlike many other rhetoricians and semioticians, he doesn t do any hard low level analysis himself He may analyze terms, other s uses of terms, and with encyclopedic mastery, run the gambit of tearing through collected works of so many others to pull the threads he needs to weave a larger discourse, but he almost never takes you through line by line synthesis and application Stranger too, he never pr [...]


    • The first time I read this book 1998 99 I read it badly and did not realize until I was than half way through that I had read it badly so I started from the beginning again and realized how important it was for me, especially with Time and Narrative.But it was key for my understanding of use of language as the biblical canon developed over than a millennia.I see it as a key book for understanding theological hermeneutics Along with Ricoeur s use of Frank Kermode concept that the end of the nar [...]


    • Hard going, but presented in a reader friendly manner, really I only ploughed on through as this book forms a pair with the Time Narrative volumes, which is where of my interest really lies.Check predication syntagmatic a host of literary terms.Get the most out of this linked collection of studies by reading the original texts that Ricoeur covers.Fascinating to follow the development of his argument, stretching from Aristotle up to contemporary treatments of metaphor.Useful to read the introdu [...]


    • I love Ricoeur and enjoyed his take on metaphor in his slim volume Interpretation Theory Discourse and the Surplus of Meaning , and I m interested in the Cognitive Linguistic take on metaphor, so I hope to read this as well Actually, Gary Holland recently did an analysis of skaldic kennings using Cog Ling metaphor theory, and my dissertation is all about skaldic poetics, so it could be that this whole area is a chapter waiting to be concieved I d better read fast Nov 2008 update have read the fi [...]


    • Well, I m sure this book is better than I rated it, but it rather exposed my lack of philosophical training Still, despite really following about half of it, I found it a very useful review of the development of metaphor theory from Aristotle to the mid twentieth century I learned quite about about new to me philosophers like Max Black and French schools of thought.


    • Ugh Why are the continentalists do dang difficult to read If they really loved poetry of language, couldn t they practice a little of it Still, it s nice to get the perspective of this Structuralist as well as heaping quotes from theorists like Jakobson and Max Black to round out my education.


    • Tout a pour aA whole lot of wearisome but minute studies to end on a totally idealistic and unfunded conclusion I was not really enlightened about what metaphor was all about.


    • Stars are meaningless The book is so in love with its own content I don t believe that it is talking of metaphor.
