Ricœur library management
The documentary space of the Fonds Ricœur is a place for welcoming all researchers and readers who are interested in Paul Ricœur ’s thought. His library and also his archives are only available for consultation on site/ in situ, after registration.
This space will be used for exhibitions and specific activities and group visits are possible.
It is made up of three areas:
· The Ricœur room, which comprises:
The collection of his works in many languages and the secondary literature which his oeuvre has inspired.
Temporary exhibitions of archival documents in display cabinets, or concentric circles of readings around a work by Paul Ricœur or a relevant theme
A space for meetings and for study
· Ricœur’s own library, where there are workstations for researchers
· The archives
The working library and Ricœur room (14.00-18.00):
Visits to the Ricœur room are possible without registration, up to capacity.
Access to the books and to the work stations require prior registration, dependent upon presentation of a research plan or a letter of interest addressed to the Conseil Scientifique of the Fonds Ricœur , 83 Boulevard Arago, Paris 75014 and conditional upon space being available. It may be necessary to limit the use of work stations, if too many researchers wish to use the area at the same time, and in such an eventuality priority will be given to those who need intensive access over a short timescale.
Ricœur archives (10.00-14.00 by appointment):
