The Republic in History: The Question of Civil Humanism
This article examines the concept of civil humanism in the context of its formation and dissemination. The point of departure for this essay is the historical and political debates that took place in Weimar Germany in which Hans Baron (1900-1988), a German scholar who later moved to the United States, defined this notion. The focus of the analysis is on the way in which this idea was later assimilated within an Anglo-Saxon discourse inspired by anti-liberalism.
