About Paul Ricœur

  • Jean Paul Gustave Ricœur (; French: [?ikœ?]; 27 February 1913 – 20 May 2005) was a French philosopher best known for combining phenomenological description with hermeneutics.
  • As such, his thought is within the same tradition as other major hermeneutic phenomenologists, Edmund Husserl and Hans-Georg Gadamer.
  • In 2000, he was awarded the Kyoto Prize in Arts and Philosophy for having "revolutionized the methods of hermeneutic phenomenology, expanding the study of textual interpretation to include the broad yet concrete domains of mythology, biblical exegesis, psychoanalysis, theory of metaphor, and narrative theory."
