Sample text

There also there is no universal language; nevertheless anyone seems capable of learning an additional language, that of a neighboring or distant country. We have always translated: traders, explorers, diplomats, spies, under the supervision of bilinguals, always knew to clear the linguistic barrier by the practice of a foreign language.

Ricoeur’s work in this area contributes to philosophical work in other areas as well. ’’ Thus, Ricoeur’s philosophy of narrative helps us to think through a variety of ethical problems, including the issue of global and cosmopolitan justice. Together, the essays in this collection illustrate the remarkable fecundity of Ricoeur’s thought. Our contributors have been inspired by both the diversity of his work—which can be seen in the ‘‘occasional’’ nature of his thinking pointed out by David Pellauer and in the pattern of ‘‘detour and return’’ that fascinates Boyd Blundell—and, paradoxically, by its persistent attention to the themes of subjectivity, identity, capability, evil, and forgiveness.
