Ricoeur, Hermeneutics and Globalization explores the philosophical resources provided by Paul Ricoeurs hermeneutics in dealing with the challenges of a world framed by globalization. Bengt Kristensson Ugglas reflections start from an understanding of globalization as an age of hermeneutics, linking the seldom related problematic of globalization with hermeneutics through Ricoeurs concept of interpretation. The book proceeds to embrace lifelong learning as the emerging new life script of the globalized knowledge economy, the post-national memory wars generated by the celebration of national anniversaries, and the need for orientation in a post-modern world order. The author argues that Ricoeurs hermeneutics provide intellectual resources of extraordinary importance in coping with some of the most important challenges in the contemporary world.
