Paul Ricoeur has been hailed as one of the most important thinkers of the century. Oneself as Another, the clearest account of his "philosophical ethics," substantiates this position and lays the groundwork for a metaphysics of morals.

Focusing on the concept of personal identity, Ricoeur develops a hermeneutics of the self that charts its epistemological path and ontologic

I finished this book on a 34 hour (round trip) bus ride to and from Sarajevo, and it lives up to Rilke's claim,
'You must change your life!'

While very difficult at times, this book provides a further work of genius after rule of metaphor's (correctly translated living metaphor) analysis of 'metaphorical truth' and time and narrative's fundamentally life-changing analysis of story-telling, promising, and time. This book takes the question of selfhood as it's central quest. The final chapter p

Maybe Ricoeur's self, should have considered himself as the other/reader, and been more clear.

In a semester full of theories of selfhood, this book stood out as perhaps the most hopeful and certainly the most useful for anyone whose interests include disability studies. Ricouer's careful tracing of constructs of self from the grammatical to the ethical is exhaustive, and his assertion that selfhood is really comprised of an ipse self and and idem self bridged by internal personal narrative--but each adequate for the recognition of selfhood--allows a new argument against the use of the di ...more

Un livre difficile d'accès pour les novices. J'ai lu jusqu'au bout, mais je le relirai un jour pour mieux le comprendre. Ça part d'une bonne idée de base ; l'universalité de l'expérience humaine.

Shelves: philosophy
For the theologian Ricoeur’s work presents both a tough challenge and an indispensable source of inspiration. On the first assertion one can say, that Ricoeur’s work belongs to the most astute thinking that philosophy has to offer resulting in more aporias than this thinker would want his theological readers to embrace, while on the second assertion one can only be grateful for the rich, nuanced, balanced thought, that, while not theological in content, can be fruitfully employed as the framewor ...more

Excusez-moi pour mes fautes : je suis en train d’apprendre le Français et ce livre a été une façon de faire de l’exercice. Le commentaire en français sera après le commentaire en italien.

ITALIANO: Testo per specialisti. Per quanto molto attento ad affrontare ogni passaggio della riflessione, richiede una lettura paziente e sapiente. Se non si hanno nozioni di storia della filosofia, il testo è difficilmente affrontabile.

La particolarità di Ricoeur è di muoversi all'interno sia della filosofia c

Shelves: phi-on-you
"Soi-même comme un autre" is not the worst of Ricoeur's works. It even deserves three stars, as I learned a few things in it. Of course, Ricoeur has always been unable to write _books_, being devoted to terse conceptual surveys of notions, so as to sort which part of a notion suits his specific commitments. His writings are therefore most of the time utterly boring: no elevation of thought and no pristine clear structure. Conclusions are of little interest as they do not reveal anything new - in ...more

The difficulty when finishing a book like this is to know exactly what one has read and what I got out from it. It is not an easy read, but it is, on the other hand, not the most difficult written by a French philosopher either. Ricoeur's distinction between idem and ipse has been used by many and is very useful. I think that will be something I will use as well. In the last chapter I think I understand what is meant by the title as well. In that distinction between sameness and selfhood one in ...more

I had to read roughly half of this text for a class on Phenomenology, reading Merleau-Ponty's "Phenomenology of Perception" - I did not understand damn near any of it. In the words of a co-worker, it's "clear as mud." However, given the way my professor presented it, it is quite an incredible text. So I wasn't quite sure what to rate it. If anything I am rating my professor's presentation. So, I shall return to this text and hope to understand it in greater depth.

the title makes me smile...a very slow read, 15 pages an hour is a good pace.

Ah! O tempo. O descolamento do eu do espelho. A narrativa do si-mesmo como outro e uma forma, embora hermética, também por isso coesa e completa de uma visão do bordado das horas. E narrativa moderna.
