Paul Ricoeur: A Hermeneutical Theologian
(from the Dictionary of Modern Religious Thought, Boston University)
(This web editor (Peter Kenny) would disagree with the title of this description: Ricoeur would avoid being labelled a theologian. He would prefer being called a philosopher whose themes may sometimes be motivated by his religious convictions, but who also strives to philosophize without religious presuppositions in his argumentation). The article covers some of the main themes in Ricoeur but is a rough sketch.
