Actualité du Conseil scientifique du Fonds Ricœur

Scientific Council Activities:

Daniel Frey is the new President of the Fonds Ricœur's Scientific Council

 

The task facing me is to push forward the digitalization of the articles that Paul Ricœur has published in different French journals, as part of an agreement with Paris Sciences & Lettres Fondation. This wonderful yet challenging project intends to provide free and universal access to Ricour's articles which have not been previously included in his books. These articles are likely to continue to move readers toward important works while completing their own.

A brief editorial note will echo the specific context of its development and will guide readers to Ricœur's work and link them to each article. Considering the breadth of the task, I have already asked for assistance from scholars who have shared their contact information with the Fonds Ricœur. I want to extend a sincere thank-you to all scholars who joined this project: it is also a means to support the small international scientific community that attends the Fonds Ricœur on a regular basis. Those who do not know yet how to join this project, they can rest assured that in this long-term work they will find an opportunity for cooperation before 2020 !

I also want to take this opportunity to remind you of the Association of Fonds Ricœur Alumni, created under Azadeh Thiriez-Arjangi leadership and chaired by herself "with a view to creating friendly relations and connections among current and past scholars who share interest in Ricœur's thought and philosophy". The Scientific Council, supports this structure and wishes to work with the Association members in order to give a new dimension to the Fonds Ricœur scientific activities. The possibility of organizing Study Days is a particularly obvious example.
It is our great pleasure to extend the learning of Ricœur's thoughts with you.
Daniel Frey
