Kultur und Politik - Deutsche Geschichten

Lepenies, Wolf.

lepenies_kulturFor a long time the Germans, including such intellectuals as Thomas Mann, Gottfried Benn or Theodor W. Adorno, believed in the superiority of culture over politics and in their own superiority over their neighbours. It was only after liberation from National Socialism that a democratic constitution was developed whose authority was accepted and which today still shapes the national identity of the country. Wolf Lepenies examines the very precarious relationship between culture and politics in Germany from the 18th to 20th centuries and in doing so, throws new light on the catastrophes and dreams of recent times. Culture and Politics.
