 What is the Levant?

What is the Levant?

”The old world of the Levant may serve as a source of inspiration for new relationships between states and nations, based on mutual understanding and not on military and economic pressure. Egyptian, Judaic, Assyrian, Babylonian, Phoenician civilizations, Arabian Caliphates, the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires created, each in their own way, large spaces for the exchange of goods, ideas and cultural dialogue.
Eastern Mediterranean has fascinated the West since the Renaissance, through Romanticism and Modern times and the admiration of great writers, artists and musicians for the Levant has generated/given birth to magnificent visions and remarkable creation.
The cultural relationships between the Balkans, Near East and Northern Africa have continued throughout the 20thcentury, even during the Cold War and dictatorship, leading to the formation of an intellectual elite schooled in the universities of South-eastern Europe and to mutual cultural exchange. Re-connecting these ties may prove a good occasion for the diversity of mutual traditions to oppose the tendencies of uniformity and globalization overwhelmed by the pressure of profit, opening a new way of life, closer to the aspirations ofman. If globalization cannot be avoided, it can be modeled. Multiculturalism should be promoted and lived with respect for diversity, plurality of identity traditions, for human rights and liberty of conscience.
This visionary project of the Levant, adapted to the challenges of the present, will confer this area a new identity within Europe and the whole world...”

Emil Constantinescu Managing Uncertainty – A Challenge for Contemporary Society

Emil Constantinescu is a brilliant, original, and deep thinker. He consistently explores some of the most fundamental, philosophical, and normative questions about the position of the self-system in the larger political culture of state, continent, and planet. In his article “Managing Uncertainty – A Challenge for Contemporary Society”, he provides profound and mature insights into the political implications of the experience of both servitude and uncertainty. The problem with servitude is often false stability and an effort to freeze social relations. Such an approach benefits the rise of an authoritarian class. On the other hand, there is uncertainty which provokes insecurity. On the other hand, uncertainty is a profound existential challenge. Uncertainty provides more choice for human responsibility for human choice. As Emil Constantinescu says, “Uncertainty grows without awareness of the place that humans occupy in the world.” He also adds, “If man cannot be defined in his intimate structure, can we define the world that holds him?” Emil Constantinescu is a profound and original thinker and this piece is a deep exploration of the fundamental problem of the temptations of an illusory stability and the challenge of profound transformation.” Winston Nagan, Editor
