"Thank You" - Paul Ricoeur and Karl Barth

A footnote in Paul Ricoeur between Theology and Philosophy:

Frederick Lawrence tells of a lecture that Ricoeur gave at Boston University in the 1970s. A questioner, objecting to an argument of Ricoeur's, angrily denounced him as a "Barthian," and was deflated when Ricoeur merely responded: "thank you." (195n4)
