Abstract and Keywords

Paul Ricoeur is a French philosopher who refused to subscribe to any particular school of thought and instead always sought to give voice to other positions without espousing them as dogma. In trying to relate continental and Anglo-Saxon traditions, without promise of ever reaching any unity, Ricoeur became acknowledged as a ‘transatlantic’ philosopher. This chapter begins by considering Ricoeur’s philosophy, including his notions of bios and logos, time, narrative, history, ethics, and identity. It then examines his value in organizational settings in general and to process organization studies in particular.

Keywords: Paul Ricoeur, philosophy, bios, logos, time, narrative, history, ethics, identity, organization studies
