9783211799130: Theory of the Post-War Periods: Observations on Franco-German relations since 1945 (TRACE Transmission in Rhetorics, Arts and Cultural Evolution)

A new cultural-theoretical approach is used to develop a philosophy to overcome post-war traumata, or the traumatization effects that affect entire national cultures. The new aspect is the book s study of both France and Germany in its discussion of post-war issues. The reader is given insights into the approaches France and Germany took in their self-evaluation processes. In one case the issue is the admission of total humiliation, and in the other it is salvaging a certain sense of national honor. The book overcomes the speechlessness on the post-war issue that can still be observed in German/French philosophy today.
