Etre, Essence et substance chez Platon et Aristote
Course taught at the
There are several versions of the text for students of Ricœur’s famous course on Plato and Aristotle, which he taught first at Strasburg, then reworked and supplemented for the Sorbonne. It is important to restore this text within the context of contemporaneous research, and there are many researchers who see this not only as one of the best fragments of Ricœur’s teaching, but also an original philosophical reading that is important for them to be able to study.
Opening Ceremony of the Fonds Ricœur
The leaders, friends and partners of the Fonds Ricœur were received by Bernard Delanoë at the Hôtel de Ville of Paris on December 2, 2010, in order to mark the opening of the Fonds Ricœur to the public and to launch its inaugural conference.
Olivier Abel, Jean-Paul Ricœur, Catherine Goldenstein and Olivier Mongin recounted the exceptional characteristic of this place being dedicated to a philosopher. They expressed their willingness to maintain it, available to all, and warmly thanked everyone who has contributed to its realization.

Ecrits et conférences 2. Herméneutique
Paul Ricoeur's contribution to hermeneutics is considerable. Like the first volume of his Ecrits et Conférences, this one, entitled Hermeneutics, bring together in one volume, texts that have become difficult to locate and some which, having been published in other languages, have not yet been read by French readers. The manuscripts of these texts are to be found in the archives. These are texts that were written alongside his major works and they permit us to see the development of his research.
The edition, edited by Nicola Stricker and Daniel Frey is particularly thoughtful and educational/informative ; they seek to draw out the connections with Ricoeur's major works.
