This is an original examination of the philosophy of Paul Ricoeur, focusing on his specific concept of interpretation. "Ricoeur, Hermeneutics and Globalization" explores the philosophical resources provided by Paul Ricoeur's hermeneutics in dealing with the challenges of a world framed by globalization. Bengt Kristensson Uggla's reflections start from an understanding of globalization as an 'age of hermeneutics', linking the seldom related problematic of globalization with hermeneutics through Ricoeur's 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 Ricoeur's hermeneutics provide intellectual resources of extraordinary importance in coping with some of the most important challenges in the contemporary world. "Continuum Studies in Continental Philosophy" presents cutting-edge scholarship in the field of modern European thought. The wholly original arguments, perspectives and research findings in titles in this series make it an important and stimulating resource for students and academics from across the discipline.

"Bengt Kristensson Uggla has written a most fascinating book, clear and substantial, about the importance of the French philosopher Paul Ricoeur. The book explains why his theory of hermeneutics reaches far beyond his own intentions and gives us a better understanding of human life, culture and the world - permitting us to transform the clash of civilizations into a conflict of interpretations." - Peter Kemp, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, University of Aarhus, Denmark, President of the XXII World Congress of Philosophy (Seoul 2008) Reviewed in French Studies, Vol. 66, no 1.
