Abstract

Abstract

"Noble conceptions of politics in eighteenth-century Sweden (ca 1740–1790) is a study of how the Swedish nobility articulated its political ideals, self-images and loyalties during the Age of Liberty and under the rule of Gustav III. This book takes a close look at the aristocracy’s understanding of a free constitution and at the nobility’s complex relationship with the monarchy. Central themes are the old notion of mixed government, classical republican conceptions of liberty and patriotism, as well as noble thoughts on the rights and duties of the citizen, including the right to rebellion against an unrighteous ruler. The study is a conceptual analysis of public and private political statements made by members of the nobility, such as Diet speeches and personal correspondence. The book contributes to the large body of research on estate-based identities and the transformation of political language in the second half of the eighteenth century by connecting Swedish political ideals and concepts to their European context."

Abstract

Europäische Eliten - wer sind sie? Kulturpolitische Ambitionen der Europäischen Union einerseits, gelebter Alltag in EU-Europa andererseits - am Collège d'Europe (Europakolleg) berühren sich diese Sphären seit 1948. Studierende bereiten sich hier auf eine Tätigkeit in den EU-Institutionen in Brüssel vor. Die zukünftigen Experten der Europäisierung sind transnational bewandert und machen sich am Europakolleg die kulturellen und sozialen Codes des EU-Machtfelds zu eigen. Wird hier der »Homo Europaeus« geschaffen? Auf der Grundlage von Interviews und mehrmonatiger Feldforschung vor Ort zeichnet dieses Buch ein detailliertes Bild des Internats- und Studienalltags und der Entstehung des spezifischen EU-Habitus.
