As the first book in English to treat the most recent, as
yet untranslated stage of Paul Ricoeur’s work, the topical
themes of memory and forgiveness as they relate to his
theory of self and to the question of God, this publication
offers an overview of the fruitfulness of his categories for
different theological disciplines by experts from different
cultural contexts: North America, Britain, Germany and
Scandinavia. Paul Ricoeur’s own article on forgiveness as a
dimension opened up from beyond human powers, and his
contributions to the discussion of his work document a new
stage of interaction with Theology.
