Chapter Summary

In October 1933, not long after the coming to power of the Nazis in Germany, an interesting group of European intellectuals gathered in the French capital to discuss ‘the future of the European mind’. Writers and academics from all over Europe took part in the discussions that were organized by the League of Nations and chaired by the French poet and essayist Paul Valéry. Is it possible to see the discussions as successful examples of intellectual exchange, of sharing ideas concerning the problems of Europe? In this chapter special attention will be given to the contributions of Johan Huizinga, Hermann von Keyserling, Julien Benda, Pál Teleki, Jean Cantacuzéne and Jules Romains. Did they succeed in becoming – as Valéry hoped – ‘a power of transformation’ that could rescue the world?
