Editorial Reviews

Review

'Richard Kearney has become our surest guide to the import of Paul Ricoeur for our period. Ricoeur's enormous range and creativity is matched in this volume by Richard Kearney's own in this masterful study.' David Tracy, Professor of Divinity, University of Chicago, USA 'This eloquent study of Paul Ricoeur on history, at once comprehensive and imaginative, instructs us not only on a topic central to Ricoeur's thought throughout his career but deftly guides us into the depths of history itself.' Edward S. Casey, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, State University of New York at Stony Brook. '[Kearney] does a beautiful job of explaining many of the key concepts, transitions, and conclusions of Ricoeur's philosophy... Clearly one of the very best explanations of Ricoeur's work, this book should be required reading for graduate students interested in the work of one of France's most prominent philosophers. Advanced undergraduates will benefit from it too... Highly recommended.' Choice 'Richard Kearney has been a very well known interpreter of Ricoeur's work for several years. In his book on Paul Ricoeur's philosophy, he explores his hermeneutic philosophy, starting with Ricoeur's specific modification of phenomenology... a sound commentary and therefore useful introduction to Ricoeur's hermeneutic philosophy...' www.arsdisputandi.org 'Kearney's thoughtful discussion reveals the relevance of Ricoeur's inter-subjective approach to hermeneutics for students of utopian thought and movements... the synthetic scope of Kearney's discussion, the clarity of his interpretive analysis, and the carefully chosen interviews, are a fitting tribute to the daunting breadth of Ricoeur's thought, and it raises pointed questions about utopianism, most notably the dialectic between traditions, critique, and utopian innovation.' Utopian Studies 'Readers looking for further discussion with Paul Ricoeur will appreciate On Paul Ricoeur: The Owl of Minerva, which includes a series of five dialogues between Kearney and Ricoeur conducted over four decades (from 1978 to 2003). The interview format is appropriate to both of these thinkers, since dialogue is such an important part of their respective oeuvres.' Heythrop Journal

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Paul Ricoeur is a philosophical and theological thinker whose scope and economy of writing is unmatched in this age. Still more, it is difficult to find philosophers and theologians who can adequately engage with him. That the author, Richard Kearney, was a former student of Ricoeur's still makes no guarantee that he can do so. But Kearney does, indeed.

Kearney's book is first class in this field of thinking on Ricoeur. I would consider it as important as any of Ricoeur's own books. Though it is not "critical", this books lays out a wonderful exposition of many of Ricoeur's points. In this sense, it is better than a critical approach which often puts the progect of critiquing before understanding what is being read or thought.

Format: Paperback
[[ASIN:0754650189 On Paul Ricoeur: The Owl of Minerva (Transcending Boundaries in Philosophy and Theology) (Transcending Boundaries in Philosophy and Theology) (Transcending Boundaries in Philosophy and Theology)] Excellent for my purposes. Kearney links key Ricoeur ideas into subject chapters that make systemic inquiry more feasible for a non-philosopher.
