Paul Ricoeur's theory of narrative has implications for a wide spectrum of contemporary thought. This collection of essays explores many of the areas to which his narrative strategies can be fruitfully applied, including architecture, psychology, psychoanalysis, feminist theory, ethics, sociology, medieval and contemporary literature, and religious studies. The book provides an introduction to the creative and productive resources of Ricoeur's narrative theory and offers a helpful survey of many of his key concepts for those who may be unfamiliar with Ricoeur's work.With Contributions By:Pamela AndersonDavid D.

Editorial Reviews

"The topic of narrative is currently a much discussed one, and Ricoeur's contribution has been one of the most significant. By reason of its interdisciplinary approach - which has the effect of highlighting the numerous and varied implications of Ricoeur's contribution to narrative theory - this volume will make an important contribution to the discussion." -- Gary B. Madison, Department of Philosophy, McMaster University "This is an important addition and challenge to existing work on Ricoeur and on narrative theory. It accomplishes much while showing how wide a range of texts and topics Ricoeur's ideas can illuminate. It will make an immediate impact and hold an important place for years to come." -- L.M. Findlay, Department of English, University of Saskatchewan "An important and original contribution to research, this volume achieves what no single author could achieve: an introduction to the strong interdisciplinary dimension of Ricoeur's work. The inner coherence is strong and yet does not interfere with the genuine approach of each contribution." -- Maurice Boutin, Religious Studies, McGill University
