About this video

Barnabas Aspray talks about Paul Ricoeur, who exemplifies faithful Christian thinking that engages with culture without losing its distinct voice. He embraces and challenges ideas, maintaining critical evaluation with his career spanning pre-WWII and post periods. He has produced works in such diverse topics as hermeneutics, ethics, free will, and the problem of evil. Ricoeur's influence extends beyond philosophy departments, into literature, history, law, and theology. He is notable for maintaining rigorous boundaries between philosophy and theology. His method encourages open dialogue between philosophy and theology, acknowledging the contribution of each while resisting their absorption into each other.
