Description


Poetics, Praxis and Critique: Paul Ricoeur in the Age of Hermeneutical Reason addresses contemporary problems of justice, the recognition of disabled persons, the role of imagination in political judgment, the need for religious hospitality and carnal hermeneutics. The essays in this volume are a testament to the power of hermeneutical reason. Following Paul Ricoeur's style of philosophizing, they explore innovative solutions to pressing issues of our time. Individually, these essays advance new perspectives on the anthropological presuppositions behind the requirement of justice, the role played by convictions and beliefs in pluralistic contexts, and the place of a post-critical religious faith. Together, they demonstrate the value of a hermeneutical mode of reasoning in an age in which conflicts, tensions and violence abound. Their thoughtful engagement with current challenges attests to this volume's conviction that we, with others, have the ability to intervene in the course of the world to the benefit of all.
