Ricoeur and Castoriadis in Discussion : On Human Creation, Historical Novelty, and the Social Imaginary Paperback / softback

Edited by Suzi Adams

Description

This book features a highly significant discussion between Paul Ricoeur and Cornelius Castoriadis.

Recorded for Radio France (Culture) in 1985, it is the only known encounter between these two great philosophers of the imagination.

Their wide ranging conversation covers such themes as the productive imagination, human creation, social imaginaries, and the possibility of historical novelty; it reveals points of surprising commonality as well as divergence in their approaches.

The dialogue is supplemented by critical essays by specialist scholars in Castoriadis and Ricoeur studies, and includes contributions from Johann P.

Arnason, George H. Taylor, Francois Dosse, Johann Michel, Jean-Luc Amalric, and Suzi Adams.

The book is a must read for all scholars interested in Ricoeur and Castoriadis studies, as well as those interested in debates on the possibilities and limits of human creation, and the importance of the imagination for social change.
