Book Description

July 27 2010 Fordham University Press
Paul Ricoeur's entire philosophical project narrates a passion for the possible expressed in the hope that in spite of death, closure, and sedimentation, life is opened by superabundance, by how the world gives us much more than is possible. Ricoeur's philosophical anthropology is a phenomenology of human capacity, which gives onto the groundless ground of human being, namely, God. Thus the story of the capable man, beginning with original goodness held captive by a servile will and ending with the possibility of liberation and regeneration of the heart, underpins his passion for the more than possible. The essays in this volume trace the fluid movement between phenomenological and religious descriptions of the capable self that emerges across Ricoeur's oeuvre and establish points of connection for future developments that might draw inspiration from this body of thought.

Review


Many scholars from a variety of disciplines will find this an interesting and enlightening text. It not only broadens our understanding of Ricoeur's work but also builds on it, following his exemplary model on how to do philosophy.-Christina Gschwandtner


This is the first collection of essays to self-consciously address itself retrospectively to Paul Ricoeur's philosophical oeuvre.-W. David Hall

I bought this book to read the papers by Paul Ricoeur, Ellen Herda, and papers written about Paul Ricoeur. This was worth all the money that I spent. The insights that these papers offer the reader cannot be duplicated in other books. We must take seriously the works that they produced.
