    Ricoeur’s Translation Model as a Mutual Labour of Understanding.Alison Scott-Baumann - 2010 - Theory, Culture and Society 27 (5):69-85.
    Ricoeur has written about translation as an ethical paradigm. Translation from one language to another, and within one’s own language, provides both a metaphor and a real mechanism for explaining oneself to the other. Attempting and failing to achieve symmetry between two languages is a manifestation of the asymmetry inherent in human relationships. If actively pursued, translation can show us how to forgive other people for being different from us and thus serves as a paradigm for tolerance. In full acceptance (...)

  2. Reconstructive Hermeneutical Philosophy: Return Ticket to the Human Condition.Alison Scott-Baumann - 2003 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 29 (6):703-727.
    Making meaning out of life requires effort, sustained thought and action. It can be difficult to reassert our responsibility for solving real life problems from within social science research or current trends, such as extremely deconstructivist text, and postmodernism in its cheerfully nihilistic guise. Hermeneutical philosophy, of the Ricoeurian reconstructive mode, rehabilitates text as a powerful device for influencing others and offers us courage to proceed with the human project by developing a way of writing, thinking and behaving that is (...)

    Iris Murdoch and the Moral Imagination: Essays.M. F. Simone Roberts & Alison Scott-Baumann (eds.) - 2010 - McFarland.
    The writing of Iris Murdoch has long been of interest to both literature enthusiasts and students of philosophy. The years Murdoch spent studying philosophy at Oxford and Cambridge left an indelible imprint on her work. The essays in this book address both Murdoch’s philosophy and writing in the context of Continental philosophy and postmodern fiction. Many of the twelve essays resist the prevailing critical orthodoxies, introducing instead new theories with which to approach one of Britain’s most revered authors.

    Being a Stranger by Paul Ricoeur.Alison Scott-Baumann - 2010 - Theory, Culture and Society 27 (5):37-48.
    We distinguish between citizens of a state and strangers in a categorical way that seems clear and has the force of law behind it. In fact nationality is a highly contested phenomenon and one that is desired by many who are considered to be aliens or strangers. They range from guest-workers, to immigrants, to asylum seekers and they are often viewed with deep suspicion, even fear. The Kantian injunction to be hospitable to others is not being heeded, but should be (...)

    Text as Action, Action as Text? Ricoeur, λoƔoσ and the Affirmative Search for Meaning in the ‘Universe of Discourse’.Alison Scott-Baumann - 2011 - Discourse Studies 13 (5):593-600.
    Ricoeur placed a great deal of importance upon text and the interpretation of text. Bell accepts this by virtue of his extended analysis of the story of Babel, and I hope to offer ways of extending and developing Bell’s arguments to incorporate the ethical demands that Ricoeur placed upon text, upon our interpretation of text and upon action as a form of readable text. This will not include a commentary on discourse analysis, which I am not qualified to give. Ricoeur (...)
