Publication of the translation of Johann Michel's Ricoeur and the Post-Structuralists is a most welcome event. Michel is one of the most talented Ricoeur scholars writing today, and the present translation significantly extends the growing international discussion of Ricoeur and augments Michel's own mounting international reputation. The book will be rewarding for those with knowledge already of Ricoeur, as it contextualizes and broadens the reach of Ricoeur's themes by demonstrating points of comparison and contrast with the contemporary thought of Bourdieu, Castoriadis, Deleuze, Derrida, and Foucault. Michel's treatment will also be enlightening for those more newly coming to Ricoeur in this volume through their prior study of the other figures Michel addresses. -- George Taylor, University of Pittsburgh
This is one of the most important new books on the work of Paul Ricoeur. Johann Michel puts the main themes of Ricoeur's extensive writings in the context of his late 20th century colleagues, Bordieu, Derrida, Foucault, and Deleuze. Scott Davidson has done a masterful translation. This book is an outstanding and original contribution to the understanding of contemporary French philosophy. -- Charles Reagan, Kansas State University
