Paul Ricoeur was one of the giants of contemporary Continental philosophy. He also knew and drew upon the Analytic tradition. Over a long life, he pursued questions of philosophical anthropology as they relate to a good life, lived with and for others in just institutions. His work has been translated into numerous languages and widely discussed by legal theorists, historians, literary critics, and theologians as well as philosophers. "Ricoeur: A Guide for the Perplexed" is the ideal text to support anyone trying to reach a firm understanding of this important contemporary philosopher. The guide locates Ricoeur's output in its historical and intellectual context, provides an overview of Ricoeur's central ideas and defines carefully the key terms in his philosophical writing. Close attention is paid to each of Ricoeur's major works, including "The Conflict of Interpretations" and "From Text to Action". Ricoeur's importance for particular disciplines - including literary criticism, social theory, political philosophy and theology - is explained and explored. Above all, this Guide for the Perplexed offers constructive and illuminating suggestions for how to read Ricoeur. A major contribution to Ricoeur scholarship in its own right, it is also an invaluable companion to be read alongside Ricoeur's own works. "Continuum's Guides for the Perplexed" are clear, concise and accessible introductions to thinkers, writers and subjects that students and readers can find especially challenging - or indeed downright bewildering. Concentrating specifically on what it is that makes the subject difficult to grasp, these books explain and explore key themes and ideas, guiding the reader towards a thorough understanding of demanding material.

MEDIA REVIEWS
David Pellauer brings his comprehensive and penetrating Ricoeur scholarship to bear on the full spectrum of Ricoeur's books. This overview is written in a clear narrative style which shows the Ricoeur corpus in its rich fullness ... Now that the canon is closed, this is a timely book.
