I shall not comment on the philosophical stance and range of this work's argument but, for those not familiar with Ricoeur, I would suggest that you persist with an effort to read this. It is thorough, well written and well translated, although Ricoeur himself has a deeply irritating, overly architectonic and academic manner of presenting his argument, e.g., 'I shall now tell you in three sections what was referred to in the previous study and in study four, which was preparation for study nine, where the argument proceed in four stages in order to....etc.' ... Or else purchase a primer, or switch to someone such as Levinas!
