Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Anyone with an interest in Ricoeur will profit from this exceptionally well-conceived and well-crafted compilation; it touches on every significant aspect of the thinker’s oeuvre … the Ricoeur that emerges here embodies all that his audience esteems in the engaged intellectual’s efforts to forge a living connection between critical reflection and responsible action.” — CHOICE

“I fully believe that Ricoeur’s work is crucial to contemporary theory. In philosophy, religious studies, aesthetics, humanities, and social sciences in general, Ricoeur has a clear place and this collection covers the wide range that is needed.” — Farhang Erfani, American University
