We hear about "nation" - and "nationalisms" - on a daily basis, with the most diverse declinations and even ideological drifts, but how did the concept come about and how did it evolve over the course of history?
The essays collected in this volume show us: the extensive and in-depth reconstruction by Rosario Romeo, which illustrates the evolution of the term starting from the Second World War, the culmination and (dramatic) outcome of the principles established by the French Revolution, is preceded by precise reflections by Felice Battaglia and Walter Maturi who, just prior to that conflict from which Romeo's analysis starts, now acquire particular historical value, defining the distinction of the concept of "nation" from that of "State" and tracing the origin of the "principle" of nationality in the early modern age and even more in the thought of Rousseau and Herder.
The philosophical perspective of Marcello Mustè introduces and expands the point of view of historians, who also looks at the developments of recent decades and at the political articulations in the contemporary context.
