Overview

Dan Stiver presents the implications of Paul Ricoeur's hermeneutical philosophy for a postmodern theology by providing a comprehensive interpretation of Ricoeur and then applying Ricoeur's hermeneutical theory to biblical interpretation and theology. Stiver situates Ricoeur's contributions in the Yale-Chicago debate and shows how Ricoeur's textual theory provides a real alternative to George Lindbeck (on the one hand) and deconstruction (on the other).

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Stiver (theology, Hardin-Simmons University) considers the theological implications of Ricoeur's hermeneutics. Stiver offers a reading of Ricoeur's work, placing it as a post-modern alternative to both Linbeck's theories and deconstruction. He then applies Ricoeur's textual theory to the practices of Biblical interpretation. Chapters focus on the text, the hermeneutical arc, meaning, forms of discourse, the self and other, truth and attestation, and the relationship between theology and philosophy. Annotation c.
