Paul Ricoeur: Living Up to Death

Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews has a review of a recently published collection of Ricoeur's unpublished notes and reflections, focussed on death (that of his wife Simone and his own).  The review is interesting because it raises the issue of whether these fragments should ever have been published, but also because the book sees Ricoeur reflecting on his Christian faith, its relationship with his work as a philisopher, and his relationship with Derrida.  Of the latter he says "I am quite ordinary and no doubt my works will endure less than will those of Derrida who is really quite extraordinary" (p. 87).
