Thinking with Paul Ricoeur

The Divinity School is holding a series of events, spanning the years 2013 to 2015, to commemorate the centenary of Paul Ricoeur’s birth.

To attempt to capture something of his unique intellectual spirit, the sessions aim to think with Ricoeur toward an enhanced understanding of religion via the themes of ethics, philosophy, and culture.  

This series is sponsored by the France Chicago Center and the Martin Marty Center at the University of Chicago Divinity School.

Please join us for either or both of the two upcoming sessions.
