About Author:

Paul Ricœur Kathleen McLaughlin David Pellauer

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 Time and Narrative, Volume 1

  • Steve Greenleaf

    I recall the first time that I read a complete book by Hannah Arendt. I was on a break from college. Reading Between Past and Future, I was awed. And more often, overawed. I felt that I gained insights from her only in glimpses, reading by lightning flashes—moments of insight followed by darkness and confusion. With time—that is, with multiple readings of her works, I gained some comprehension of what she intended to convey. When a reader confronts a dense, challenging text, if you can see l [...]

    I'm well into volume 2 now. I recommend this book for restricted environments (buses, jet trips, etc.) or long solitary periods, as it requires a lot of concentration and requires marginalia or note-taking to keep track. The mind behind the text is impressive.


  • Gerardo

    Ricoeur essaie de rétablir l’importance du rapport entre récit et histoire, en commençant cette trilogie sur le temps et la narration. Mais, avant de faire une reconnaissance parmi les différentes réflexions théorisées par les historiens sur le temps, il analyse les idées de Saint Augustin et Aristote sur le temps même. Chez Saint Augustin, il y a trois sortes de présent : le présent du passé (mémoire), le présent du présent (attention) et le présent du futur (attente). En plus [...]


  • Theryn Fleming

    The first chapter discusses the theory of time (distentio animi, or the threefold present: expectation, memory, attention) in Augustine's Confessions; the second, the theory of plot in Aristotle's Poetics. Not an easy read, especially the first chapter, which is centered on the question of what time is exactly and how we know it exists. The second chapter is somewhat less opaque. It focuses on emplotment (muthos) and mimetic activity (mimesis), which Ricoeur divides into three stages: mimesis1 ( [...]


  • Daniel

    Wonderful, if occasionally problematic, reconfiguration of the central tenets of Aristotle's Poetics. Examines narrative (muthos) as a lived solution to the aporias of existential time. The highlight is the chapter on the threefold mimesis - sheer genius.

  • Alex Lee

    While a brilliant work, I found the layout of his work troubling. Ricoeur is definitely able to tease out minute difference between ideas, explicate authors who may not speak directly to one another, and relate them to the larger thesis as a whole. But I found his structure to be troubling as the work is split into two sections, which seem only related via the concepts of time and narrative (even if this is a multiple volume work, he should outline a better road map.)Really, these two concepts d [...]

  • Carl

    I read a significant portion of this book for my literary history seminar with Mark Sandberg back in 2005 (Fall, I think?), and loved it at the same time that I had a hell of a time understanding it. The first two chapters take first Augustine's meditation on Time from a more ontological perspective and then Aristotle's theory of narrative from his Poetics, neither of which I was very familiar with, and then binds them together into a thesis human temporal and "narratological" ontology. I've sin [...]


  • Michael

    A five for content, and a three and a half for style. This is an extremely dense study, but Ricoeur's arguments are forceful and convincing. Part I brilliantly links Augustine's theory of time to Aristotle's theory of plot. Part II demonstrates that all history writing is narrative, even when it is written in a thematic rather than narrative style. It can be difficult to appreciate Ricoeur's own theories at times, because he spends most of the book analysing other philosopher's ideas. There is n [...]


  • Manuel Monroy Correa

    Lectura obligada para entender la hermenéutica histórica y, particularmente, aspectos hermenéuticos de la teoría literaria. Se volvió en mi segundo libro de cabecera al escribir mi tesis de licenciatura (que pone en perspectiva la poética de José Lezama Lima, la hermenéutica y la fenomenología). El análisis de la Poética de Aristóteles que hace Ricoeur en este libro es sistemático sin ser tedioso y, al mismo tiempo, lleva de la mano al lector de forma ejemplar.
