TL;DR: A collection of twenty-two essays by Ricoeur under the topics of structuralism, psychoanalysis, hermeneutics, and religion is presented in this article, focusing on the development of the philosophy of language.
Abstract: This collection brings together twenty-two essays by Paul Ricoeur under the topics of structuralism, psychoanalysis, hermeneutics, and religion. In dramatic conciseness, the essays illuminate the work of one of the leading philosophers of the day. Those interested in Ricoeur's development of the philosophy of language will find rich and suggestive reading. But the diversity of essays also speaks beyond the confines of philosophy to linguists, theologians, psychologists, and psychoanalysts.
