What is a Nation

March 2, 2019

Written By Ernest Renan

Narrated by Evan Tobia

Benito Mussolini once wrote of Ernest Renan that he had "pre-fascist intuitions." In this piece, Renan attempts to emphasize the importance of spiritual connections between people in forming a nation and rebut the idea in vogue at the time of nation and race being inseparable terms.
