A Hermeneutics of Ethical Life

James Carter

Oxford Theology and Religion Monographs

  • presents a clear and well-defended stance on Ricoeur as a philosopher of religion who has not been appropriately located in either twentieth-century philosophy or modern theology
  • Offers an alternative to the standard interpretations of Ricoeur as influenced predominantly by Kant or Aristotle
  • Focuses on Ricoeur's hermeneutic method and suggests ways in which this can be fruitfully applied to contemporary debates in philosophy of religion, moral philosophy, and philosophical theology
  • Demonstrates Ricoeur's relevance to and significance for contemporary debates in these fields
