Roger W. H. Savage has put together an important set of essays, which demonstrates various ways in which Ricoeur’s thought and work can offer solutions to a range of problems in contemporary practical philosophy. Each essay expertly considers new and pressing questions in this developing area of Ricoeur scholarship. But the collection is not simply a valuable contribution to how we might understand Ricoeur: it shows its readers intriguing new ways of thinking with and after the philosopher. It is a fine example of the continuing significance of hermeneutic reason as an interpretative approach.

This fine book testifies to the ongoing relevance of the work of Paul Ricoeur. Engaging with wide-ranging contemporary issues, such as those of power, violence, capacities, fragility, justice, responsibility, and recognition, the various authors of this volume draw on Ricoeur’s intellect, wisdom, and compassion, to sustain this age of hermeneutic reason.
