Memory, Narrativity, Self and the Challenge to Think God

The Reception within Theology of the Recent Work of Paul Ricoeur

Edited by: Maureen Junker-Kenny, Peter Kenny

As the first book in English to treat the most recent, as yet untranslated stage of Paul Ricoeur's work, the topical themes of memory and forgiveness as they relate to his theory of self and to the question of God, this publication offers an overview of the fruitfulness of his categories for different theological disciplines by experts from different cultural contexts: North America, Britain, Germany and Scandinavia. Paul Ricoeur's own article on forgiveness as a dimension opened up from beyond human powers, and his contributions to the discussion of his work document a new stage of interaction with Theology.
