About the Author:

Henry Isaac Venema is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Messiah College.

Review:

Venema has taken on a significant project in that he attempts to show that there are specific strands of thought that underlie and unify Ricoeur s thinking on phenomenological description, interpretation, understanding, narrative, metaphor, imagination, and selfhood. Helping others understand these textual and thematic interconnections in Ricoeur s writings is a significant contribution to the study of Ricoeur s thought and place in twentieth-century philosophy vis-a-vis Ricoeur s own responses to other major twentieth-century thinkers. Selfhood takes Ricoeur back to some of the very fundamental issues in Husserlian phenomenology that contributed to Ricoeur s philosophical development and points to those issues where Ricoeur distanced himself from specific phenomenological formulations. Gayle L. Ormiston, coeditor of The Hermeneutic Tradition: From Ast to Ricoeur
This book exhibits a good grasp of certain main phases of the development of Ricoeur s thought and thus is not merely a regurgitation of Ricoeur, but quite a creative rendition, and from a questioning point of view. It carries Ricoeur scholarship and interests into discussions that are relevant to continental philosophy today. Patrick L. Bourgeois, coauthor of Traces of Understanding: A Profile of Heidegger s and Ricoeur s Hermeneutics"
