About Author:

Paul Ricœur Kathleen Blamey

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.

Comments Oneself as Another

    I finished this book on a 34 hour (round trip) bus ride to and from Sarajevo, and it lives up to Rilke's claim, 'You must change your life!' While very difficult at times, this book provides a further work of genius afterrule of metaphor's (correctly translated living metaphor) analysis of 'metaphorical truth' andtime and narrative'sfundamentally life-changing analysis of story-telling, promising, and time. This book takes the question of selfhood as it's central quest. The final chapter provide [...]

    What!?Maybe Ricoeur's self, should have considered himself as the other/reader, and been more clear.

  • Sarah

    In a semester full of theories of selfhood, this book stood out as perhaps the most hopeful and certainly the most useful for anyone whose interests include disability studies. Ricouer's careful tracing of constructs of self from the grammatical to the ethical is exhaustive, and his assertion that selfhood is really comprised of an ipse self and and idem self bridged by internal personal narrative--but each adequate for the recognition of selfhood--allows a new argument against the use of the di [...]

    Un livre difficile d'accès pour les novices. J'ai lu jusqu'au bout, mais je le relirai un jour pour mieux le comprendre. Ça part d'une bonne idée de base ; l'universalité de l'expérience humaine.

    For the theologian Ricoeur’s work presents both a tough challenge and an indispensable source of inspiration. On the first assertion one can say, that Ricoeur’s work belongs to the most astute thinking that philosophy has to offer resulting in more aporias than this thinker would want his theological readers to embrace, while on the second assertion one can only be grateful for the rich, nuanced, balanced thought, that, while not theological in content, can be fruitfully employed as the fram [...]

    Excusez-moi pour mes fautes : je suis en train d’apprendre le Français et ce livre a été une façon de faire de l’exercice. Le commentaire en français sera après le commentaire en italienALIANO: Testo per specialisti. Per quanto molto attento ad affrontare ogni passaggio della riflessione, richiede una lettura paziente e sapiente. Se non si hanno nozioni di storia della filosofia, il testo è difficilmente affrontabile. La particolarità di Ricoeur è di muoversi all'interno sia della f [...]

    "Soi-même comme un autre" is not the worst of Ricoeur's works. It even deserves three stars, as I learned a few things in it. Of course, Ricoeur has always been unable to write _books_, being devoted to terse conceptual surveys of notions, so as to sort which part of a notion suits his specific commitments. His writings are therefore most of the time utterly boring: no elevation of thought and no pristine clear structure. Conclusions are of little interest as they do not reveal anything new - i [...]

    The difficulty when finishing a book like this is to know exactly what one has read and what I got out from it. It is not an easy read, but it is, on the other hand, not the most difficult written by a French philosopher either. Ricoeur's distinction between idem and ipse has been used by many and is very useful. I think that will be something I will use as well. In the last chapter I think I understand what is meant by the title as well. In that distinction between sameness and selfhood one in [...]

    I had to read roughly half of this text for a class on Phenomenology, reading Merleau-Ponty's "Phenomenology of Perception" - I did not understand damn near any of it. In the words of a co-worker, it's "clear as mud." However, given the way my professor presented it, it is quite an incredible text. So I wasn't quite sure what to rate it. If anything I am rating my professor's presentation. So, I shall return to this text and hope to understand it in greater depth.

  • Don

    the title makes me smilea very slow read, 15 pages an hour is a good pace.

  • Geórgia Alves

    Ah! O tempo. O descolamento do eu do espelho. A narrativa do si-mesmo como outro e uma forma, embora hermética, também por isso coesa e completa de uma visão do bordado das horas. E narrativa moderna.
