This chapter discusses the phenomenological roots of hermeneutic studies and forms a link to narratives accounts of identity. It then focuses on a turn in international relations that is concerned with meaning and which is tied into the real world relations of global politics through narratives. It considers the role of radical phenomenology as one of the roots of interpretivism, which in turn has influenced narrative. It also examines the theme of narrative identity and discusses founding events and storied culture. The chapter ends with a section on the literary international relations.
