About the Author:

Paul Ricouer, Professor Emeritus at the University of Paris X, is the author, most recently of, Critique and Conviction (Columbia).

From Library Journal:

Though Ricoeur's book brings to mind Karl Mannheim's classic Ideology and Utopia , his purpose is not to advance a thesis about the nature of ideological or utopian thinking but to intrepret texts. In section 1, he offers a painstaking discussion of Marx's concept of ideology, especially as found in his earlier work, and illuminating commentary on the difficult works of Althusser. In section 2, he briefly considers the utopian thought of Saint-Simon and Fourier. Ricoeur displays his customary skill both in telling us what an author means and in comparing and contrasting texts. He rarely seems interested, though, in asking whether an argument is valid. The book is based on lectures given at the University of Chicago in 1975 and edited by a former student.
