In 1946, Europe’s leading artists, philosophers and writers formed a transnational society designed to defuse the tensions left by World War II. The Society of European Culture was founded by some of Western Europe’s most well-known intellectuals, including Albert Camus, André Gide, J.B. Haldane, Thomas Mann, Henri Matisse, Karl Jaspers, Carl Jung, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Schweitzer amongst others. Much like the American-funded ‘Congress for Cultural Freedom’, the SEC created an informal but powerful political and cultural network across the world―seeking to enable dialogue between the Soviet East and the liberal West and further a ‘trans-European’ cultural ideal.Here, in the first complete history of the organization, Nancy Jachec shows how the organization became the model for UNESCO and George Soros’ Open Society Network, how the organizations work became the inspiration for the Declaration of Human Rights and demonstrates the profound influence its members exercised during the signing of the Helsinki Accords of 1975. Its founder and chairman, Umberto Campagnolo, was nominated twice for the Nobel Peace prize, and is one of the great ‘forgotten men’ of a crucial period in world history, as the Iron Curtain fell.

Book Description I.B.Tauris Co. Ltd., United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1950, nearly 300 of Europe s leading artists, philosophers and writers formed an international society intended to end the Cold War. The European Society of Culture was composed of many of Western Europe s best-known intellectuals, including Theodor Adorno, Julien Benda, Albert Camus, Benedetto Croce, Andre Gide, J. B. Haldane, Karl Jaspers, Carl Jung, Thomas Mann, Henri Matisse, Francois Mauriac, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Jean-Paul Sartre, Giuseppe Ungaretti and Albert Schweitzer, among many others; over the next twenty years it would also include many luminaries from the East, such as Bertolt Brecht, Ernst Bloch, Ilya Ehrenburg and Georg Lukacs. Pioneering the earliest political discussions between intellectuals in Eastern and Western Europe that would serve as a model for the activities of the better-known CCF in its efforts to end communism, the ESC went on to create an informal but powerful, 1,600 member-strong cultural and political network across the world in pursuit of dialogue between the Marxist East and the liberal West, and in pursuit of peace and shared cultural values. Here, in this first, comprehensive history of the SEC s early years, Nancy Jachec demonstrates the influence its members had not only on preventing the isolation of Europe s eastern states, but on enabling the flow of people, publications and ideas from the West into the East, thus playing a vital role in introducing the ideals of human rights and cultural rights in the East in the run-up to the signing of the Helsinki Accords of 1975. She also shows the profound impact that the SEC had on the development of post-colonial theory through the exchanges it organised between European and African intellectuals, directly shaping the expectations statesmen like Leopold Sedar Senghor, revolutionaries like Frantz Fanon, and institutions such as Unesco would have of culture in newly emerging countries.
