Paul Ricœur is one of the most distinguished philosophers of the 21st century. Concerned with philosophical anthropology and “the capable human being,” he engaged the capabilities, without ignoring the vulnerabilities, which human beings display in the social activities that make up their ordinary and authentic lives. In celebration of the tenth anniversary of his death, this international conference focuses on Ricœur’s oeuvre and its relationship to politics, society, and religion, particularly in Asia. Interpreting Ricœur from these multicultural, plural, and diverse perspectives allows us to work for global collaboration, solidarity, and unity.
