INTELLECTUALS AND THE NATION - COLLECTIVE IDENTITY IN A GERMAN AXIAL AGE

INTELLECTUALS AND THE NATION - COLLECTIVE IDENTITY IN A GERMAN AXIAL AGE

This book proposes a theory of collective and national identity based on culture and language rather than power and politics. Applying this to what he calls GermanyOs Oaxial ageO, Bernhard Giesen shows how the codes of nineteenth-century German identity in turn became those of the divided Germany between 1945 and 1989. The identity he describes derives from the ideas of German intellectuals, from the uprooted Romantic poets to the influential German mandarins, and was borne by the newly emerging bourgeoisie.
