NR 9 2010THEME: The fragile civilization


Civilization requires sacrifices

The expression "the sacrificial nature of culture" used to be a catchword. Among other place, you find it in Viktor Rydberg's poem "Den nya grottesången". But it originated in Pontus Wikner's small book with this title from 1880, based on a lecture.

Editor's Column

The unmade bed's diktat

"What is civilization? I do not know. I cannot define it in abstract terms. But I think I would recognise it when I see it ...". So began the art historian Kenneth Clark's BBC series Civilisation from the late 1960s. There are probably many that share Clark's view, that civilization is best defined a roundabout way - through the cultural expression that seems to capture the core of civilisation.
