Présentation de l'éditeur

Where does evil come from? How is it that we do evil? This book falls into three parts. The first part deals with the magnitude and complexity of the problem of evil from a phenomenological perspective. The second part investigates the levels of speculation on the origin and nature of evil. The third discusses thinking, acting and feeling in connection with evil. The discussion runs in the classic intellectual tradition from Augustine, through Hegel, Leibnitz, Kant, and Nietzsche. But the voice is always that of Paul Ricoeur himself, though he also refers to modern writers like Harold Kushner (When Bad Things Happen to Good People) and John K. Roth (Encountering Evil). Ricoeur considers here man's vulnerability to evil with depth and matchless sensitivity.

Jung's answer to Job is so much powerful than this essay. But if the subject is of importance to you, it is indispensable given the erudition of Ricoeur. Also, he wrote it at the end of his writing career which gives it maturity. Jung gives an answer, tries to penetrate through the 'muck'. Ricoeur gives more of a survey. They complement each other well. A little more attention to the subject itself by more--especially progressive liberals -- could be useful here, there, and everywhere.

What good is wisdom if you can't communicate it? 17 janvier 2008
Par Kerry Walters - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Over the years, I've been to a boatload of academic conferences and listened to dozens of academic, highly professional papers in philosophy and theology. Too often, the papers are so specialized that only a handful of people in the world could possibly follow them. A not uncommon feeling walking out of a lecture room after hearing one of these papers is "huh?"

Reading (and re-reading, and re-reading yet again) Ricoeur's Evil was like walking out of those lecture rooms--which somehow seems appropriate, since the essay is the text of one of his lectures. Ricoeur at his best is irritatingly obscure. Here, he's maddeningly obtuse. I made the mistake of requiring this book in one of my classes, and none of my students--bright young people all--could figure out what Ricoeur was trying to say. Neither could I, actually.

In broad strokes, Ricoeur wants to claim that the experience of evil, either one's own or another's suffering, can never be demythologized, regardless of how strenuously we try to do so. Discourse about evil historically and psychologically has tended toward reductionism, moving from a mythic account, which simply accepts it as a given in life, to theodicy, which tries to explain it away. But the experience remains irreducible.

Okay. But if this is all Ricoeur is saying, it's neither terribly interesting nor original. What's at stake is why the experience of evil is irreducible, and for the life of me I can't figure out what Ricoeur's answer is. Nor is he clear in discussing the different levels of reductionistic discourse about evil. Especially impenetrable are his discussions of what he calls "the stage of gnosticism and anti-gnostic gnosis" (I don't even know what he intends the second term to mean) and Barth's negative dialectic.

In short, a maddening little book. Its subtitle is "A Challenge to Philosophy and Theology." Too right.

Tell your friends not to waste their time or money. 23 mai 2009
Par Thomas J. Catalano - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Bored to tears.

It's a wonder that some people develop a reputation as scholarly and profound. I thing people who give them this reputation are fearful of calling them and their works, "boring."

The book is currently on my pile of old newspapers and magazines which are being thrown away.
