65. Towards Cultural Uniformity?

Texte intégral

1In his 1771 Considerations on the Government of Polandi, Rousseau talks about the similarities he sees between people of different countries.

2These days, whatever else one may say, there are no longer any Frenchmen, Englishmen, Germans or Spaniards, there are only Europeans. Everyone has the same tastes, the same passions, the same customs, for none of them has been moulded by national institutions.

3Jean-Jacques Rousseau,
Considerations on the Government of Poland (1771).
