International Conference on Ricoeur Studies :
New Perspectives on Hermeneutics in the Social Sciences and Practical Philosophy (September 13 – 16, 2011)
Submission deadline : May 10, 2011
Languages : Russian, English, French
This international conference builds on a tradition of Ricoeur scholarship established by the University of Kent conference ‘From Ricoeur to Action’ (June 2009) and the Universidade Nova de Lisboa conference ‘Reading Ricoeur Once Again : Hermeneutics and Practical Philosophy’ (July 2010). The spirit of this conference is to further promote the world-wide dialogue between academic communities and individuals studying Paul Ricoeur’s oeuvre. The conference aims to analyze Ricoeur’s contribution to the social sciences and practical philosophy, in particular, the way hermeneutics constitutes new forms of exploration of human action and social life. The topics discussed at the conference may concern both epistemological and ontological issues of language, discourse, and textuality in contemporary social thought. We welcome critical and constructive papers assessing the contributions of Ricoeurian philosophy in any one of these areas, including papers from scholars who are not specialists in Ricoeur and whose insights will help to interpret and rethink the perspectives of hermeneutical analysis. Areas of particular interest include but are not limited to :
-* Action Theory -* Narrative Analysis -* Event Theory -* Memory Studies -* Social Epistemology and Methodology -* Phenomenology -* Critical Theory -* Political Theory and Identity -* Social and Political Imaginary -* Ideology and Utopia -* Theology, Religion and Society -* Hermeneutics and Law -* Applied Ethics -* Recognition Theory -* Literary Theory and Self-Understanding -* The Prospects for and Limits of Human Capability
