Ricœur Studies Journal

Études ricœuriennes / Ricœur Studies is an open access electronic journal founded in 2010 by Scott Davidson, Johann Michel and George Taylor and dedicated to the study of the work of philosopher Paul Ricœur. Today, ERSS is known worldwide as an international, interdisciplinary academic journal that encourages critical and constructive interpretations of Ricœur’s work. ERSS is intended to be more than a journal of commentary on the philosopher’s thought; it also welcomes the submission of original contributions – in French or in English – that draw on the philosophical traditions (hermeneutics, phenomenology, structuralism, analytic philosophy, etc.) and questions (memory, history, justice, will, recognition, etc.) that Ricœur continued to explore. The editors of the journal also wish to continue the dialogue, which Ricœur constantly pursued, between philosophy and the human and social sciences (law, political science, sociology, anthropology, history...).

In 2013, following a meeting of its evaluation commission, the French Agence d’évaluation de la recherche et de l’enseignement supérieur (since replaced by the Haut Conseil de l'évaluation de la recherche et de l’enseignement supérieur) officially recognized Études ricœuriennes/Ricœur studies, listing it as a reference journal in philosophy. This is a significant recognition of the work of the authors and the editorial team.

To date, ERRS has more than 800 users and has contributors from more than 25 different nationalities.
