    I recall the first time that I read a complete book by Hannah Arendt I was on a break from college Reading Between Past and Future I was awed And often overawed I felt that I gained insights from her only in glim

    I'm well into volume 2 now I recommend this book for restricted environments buses jet trips etc or long solitary periods as it reuires a lot of concentration and reuires marginalia or note taking to keep track The mind behind the text is impressive

    The first chapter discusses the theory of time distentio animi or the threefold present expectation memory attention in Augustine's Confessions; the second the theory of plot in Aristotle's Poetics Not an easy read especially the first chapter which is centered on the uestion of what time is exactly and how we know it exists The second chapter is somewhat less opaue It focuses on emplotment muthos and mimetic

    While a brilliant work I found the layout of his work troubling Ricoeur is definitely able to tease out minute difference between ideas explicate authors who may not speak directly to one another and relate them to the larger thesis as a whole But I found his structure to be troubling as the work is split into two sections which seem only related via the concepts of time and narrative even if this is a multiple volume wo

    Wonderful if occasionally problematic reconfiguration of the central tenets of Aristotle's Poetics Examines narrative muthos as a lived solution to the aporias of existential time The highlight is the chapter on the threefold mimesis sheer genius

    Profound book that attempts to assess the differences in various models of history eventually concluding that history is essentially narrative in character The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is its readability

    I read a significant portion of this book for my literary history seminar with Mark Sandberg back in 2005 Fall I think? and loved it at the same time that I had a hell of a time understanding it The first two chapters take first Augustine's meditation on Time from a ontological perspective and then Aristotle's theory of narrative from his Poetics neither of which I was very familiar with and then binds them together into a thesis

Temps et Récit

Icoeur proposes a theoretical model of this circle using Augustine's theory of time and Aristotle's theory of plot and further develops an original thesis of the mimetic function of narrative He concludes with a comprehensive survey and critiue of modern discussions of historical knowledge understanding and writing from Aron and Mandelbaum in the late 1930s to the work of the Annales sc. While a brilliant work I found the layout of his work troubling Ricoeur is definitely able to tease out minute difference between ideas explicate authors who may not speak directly to one another and relate them to the larger thesis as a whole But I found his structure to be troubling as the work is split into two sections which seem only related via the concepts of time and narrative even if this is a multiple volume work he should outline a better road mapReally these two concepts do not coexist at the same level When he first starts Ricoeur seems to be willing to just talk about time and narrative as general ideas His use of Aristotle and Augustine were uite inspired Like a radio he tuned to the concept of narrative so as to highlight how time was used as an excuse to connect disparate things His citing of narrative and metaphor as methods to justify understanding the function of connecting two different things was remarkable From that point on he could have spoke at length about anything he liked after all what analysis discursive or philosophy was not made to achieve understanding But then he turned to history as narrativeHistory was an interesting maneuver as that field encompasses both time and narrative Like his examination in the first part he is able to use narrative as a high level organizational filter to scrub history so as to show how history is less about time than it is about narrative organization I actually don t have much to add except that chapter 5 felt like the weakest part of the book At all times Ricoeur s analytical ability and the range of his study was astounding and a little overwhelming Still at parts he seems to meander seems draw conclusions that feel a unclear as far as where he wants to go This could be an issue with how he draws his analysisoften what he says and who he is uoting feels muddled I am not complaining that I wanted less material I don t mind that he rag picks among different thinkers to support what he wants to say or that he mixes them together I would have liked a little structure to highlight what he wants us to take awayAs it is the conclusion of second part didn t add back to the first He really only talks about history and time at the end of his conclusion instead of wrapping back to Augustine and Aristotle Perhaps this conclusion was meant to only be a conclusion for second part not for the entire workAt all points though Ricoeur is eager to show us how narrative and history are forms of creating knowledge We use time as an excuse to order objects of narrative be it cultural historical social or otherwise These different objects of narratives are fields of discourse that we use to ordain a master order to achieve unity in a concept for example the history of the Mediterranean or the history of Victorian England The construction of these high level unities reuire the meshing of first and second order objects which attain a dual status their gap between what we see them and how they belonged to a time and place we have no access to except through indirect semiotic objects Their connection and uasi status as objects was weaved through what Ricoeur calls historic intentionality this intentionality not only doubles the objects in study they also create the supra object of study a unity whose grasp we take to be synonymous with understandingI think Ricoeur s greater thesis seeks to explicate the what human understanding is and so an analysis of history as narrative still lacks some higher level grasp on what history is as a totality as he also in the first part is mired in the mechanics of emplotment and how the concept of time is the ground we use to bind temporal objects as greater unities like narrative that we call justice Beyond the immanent mechanisms of how these parts are ordered how they work aesthetically Ricoeur does not speak too much about the power of narrative or understanding for example the role of history in greater society We see that history is one kind of narrative that links other narratives through causal singular imputation rather than generic law as with physics but are there other orders that are not narrative Is all understanding narrative I think Ricoeur says yes But he doesn t go in this direction yet he s still talking about the narrative immanence using the concept of narrative to demonstrate its essentiality in constructing temporal unity Perhaps he will cover this along with other kinds of narratives in his second volume

Hool and that of Anglophone philosophers of history of the 1960s and 1970sThis work in my view puts the whole problem of narrative not to mention philosophy of history on a new and higher plane of discussion Hayden White History and Theory Superb A fine point of entrance into the work of one of the eminent thinkers of the present intellectual age Joseph R Gusfield Contemporary Sociology. Ricoeur s organization can be frustrating between summarizing others arguments and stating what he will cover in future chapterspartsvolumes it can be easy to lose what Ricoeur is doing currently But if you re willing to be a bit patient and remind yourself of what he said he would be arguing this volume is both largely compelling and highly useful in its generous enveloping of other writers
