Ricoeur, Literature and Imagination

Sophie Vlacos

To explain more is to understand better. This is the mantra by which French philosopher Paul Ricoeur lived and worked, establishing himself as one of the twentieth centurys most lucid and broad-ranging critical thinkers. A prisoner of war at 27, Ricoeur was also Dean of Paris X Nanterre during the student disturbances of 1968. In later years he became an outspoken champion of social justice. In work as in life, Ricoeur was committed to the challenges of conflict and the prospect of authentic resolution. Deeply indebted to phenomenology and the hermeneutical tradition of Heidegger and Gadamer, Ricoeur was also an advocate of structural linguistics, of psychoanalysis, and a rare conversant with the Anglo-American analytic tradition. This volume explores how literature and the conflicts of literary-theoretical debate inform Ricoeurs theory of imagination and understanding, and how Ricoeurs unique mode of literary reflection resolves the conflicts of literatures theoretical heyday, presaging a new direction for literary studies.

Paul Ricoeur's theory of narrative has implications for a wide spectrum of ... ethics , sociology, medieval and contemporary literature, and religious studies.

22.05.2013 · Abstract. Paul Ricoeur's so-called ‘philosophical embargo on God’ nonetheless belies theological themes pervasive throughout his corpus. Rather than expose him as a ‘theologian in disguise’, this article poses the question of how taking his agnosticism seriously can engender a productive imagination for religious thought.

RICOEUR VERSUS TAYLOR ON LANGUAGE AND NARRATIVE character of language and literature. Ricoeur does not place the subject in language and narrative so that inchoate narratives already inform experience.3 To be sure, Ricoeur acknowledges that history and fiction "are preceded by the use of narrative in daily life" (1984—88, 2: 156).
