One of the major intellectual figures of the twentieth century, Paul Ricoeur has influenced a generation of thinkers. In this, the first philosophically informed biography of Ricoeur, student, colleague, and confidant Charles E. Reagan provides an unusually accessible look at both the philosophy of this extraordinary thinker and the pivotal experiences that influenced his development.

"A valuable introduction to Ricoeur; highly recommended."-- Library Journal

"[A] lively introduction to the life and thought of one of this century's most notable philosophers."--Norman Wirzba, Christian Century

"Reagan lucidly explains Ricoeur's difficult philosophy while shining overdue light on the personality behind it."--Carlin Romano, Philadelphia Inquirer

"Combines biographical and philosophical essays with a more personal memoir that makes Ricoeur's humane and magnanimous nature abundantly evident. Four revealing interviews, coupled with photographs, and an extensive bibliography of primary and secondary sources, complete this illuminating study."-- Choice
