Ricoeur on Time and Narrative: An Introduction to Temps et r?cit by William C. Dowling

"The object of this book," writes William C. Dowling in his preface, "is to make the key concepts of Paul Ricoeur's Time and Narrative available to readers who might have felt bewildered by the twists and turns of its argument." The sources of puzzlement are, he notes, many. For some, it is Ricoeur's famously indirect style of presentation, in which the polarities of argument and exegesis seem so often and so suddenly to have reversed themselves.

An appendix presents his English translation of a personal interview in which Ricoeur, having completed Time and Narrative, looks back over his long career as an internationally renowned philosopher. Ricoeur on Time and Narrative communicates to readers the intellectual excitement of following Ricoeur's dismantling of established theories and arguments-Aristotle and Augustine and Husserl on time, Frye and Greimas on narrative structure, Arthur Danto and Louis O. Mink on the nature of historical explanation-while coming to see how, under the pressure of Ricoeur's analysis, these ideas are reconstituted and revealed in a new set of relations to one anoth
