Résumé

Paul Ricoeur (1913–2005) was an eminent French philosopher working at the crossroads of many schools of thought (hermeneutics, phenomenology, analytical philosophy, etc.) and in constant dialogue with the human sciences. He taught mainly in France and the United States, and gained international recognition after the publication of Oneself as Another in the early 1990s. This book is emblematic of Ricoeur's broader work in the way it binds existence and interpretation through language, culture, and interactions with others. Ricoeur proposed a practical approach to what he called ‘meaningful action,’ which is open to different and often conflicting readings. For him, meanings are not ascribed once and for all, but must be constantly negotiated and experienced as such. This also holds true for politics and ethics, as Ricoeur reworked the ancient notion of phronesis.
