Reviews

Our experience of time raises problems insoluble in its own termsand the only hope of resolving them, argues Ricoeur, lies in moving from phenomenology to history and fiction. In this volume Ricoeur concentrates on fiction, discussing in detail novels of James Joyce and Virginia Woolf. He endeavors to show that fiction and history cannot be sharply separated but rather interweave, making the difficulties in the notion of time appear less exigent. Whether one accepts Ricoeur's ``solution,'' one can only admire the author's immense learning. Regrettably, his rebarbative style may prevent this work from having the full impact it deserves.
