From Ricoeur to Action: The Socio-Political Significance of Ricoeur’s Thinking

Todd S. Mei (Editor), David Lewin (Editor)

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    This book engages with the thinking of the French philosopher Paul Ricoeur (1913–2005) in order to propose innovative responses to 21st century problems contributing to global conflict. Ricoeur’s ability to draw from a diverse field of philosophers and theologians and provide mediation to seemingly irreconcilable views often has both explicit and implicit practical application to socio-political questions. The contributors of this book develop critical yet productive responses through the development of Ricoeur’s thought with respect to such topics as race, environmental ethics, technology, political utopia, and reinterpreting religion.
