The Federalist Attitude - Denis de Rougemont

THE FEDERALIST ATTITUDE

Denis de Rougemont

«We would not be here if we thought that the most desirable type of man is the isolated individual, freed of all responsibility, vis-à-vis his fellow men. (...) Man is both free and responsible, both autonomous and uni-ted. He lives in the tension between these two poles, the particular and the general, between two responsibilities – to his vocation and to the community ; between two indissoluble loves : the one he owes to himself and the one he owes to his fellowmen.»

This edition of The federalist attitude, first published in 1947, proposes this speech of Denis de Rougemont in four languages: in French (original) and in German, Italian and English.
