[PERSPECTIVE BY @katharinajanus] On Europe: a thought that needs to become a feeling

As I am preparing to hold a conference in London next week I am getting increasingly sentimental and rational at the same time. Brexit has not even seen its aftermath – we are dealing with the before and ever continuing situation of turmoil in which a bank transfer from France can easily take a week if it is executed at all, and then only in Euro because wiring British Pound has become – it seems – like wiring Renminbi. We’re on the best way back to medieval age and European leaders are happily sailing towards doomsday. When leaders don’t know any more raise your voice: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has,” said Margaret Mead, a 20th century role-model and character. She was both a student of civilization and an exemplar of it. To a public of millions, she brought the central insight of cultural anthropology: that varying cultural patterns express an underlying human unity.

Enlighten Yourself this September in the City of Lights – Registration for the Center’s 8th Business Forum is now open

Do you know why Paris is called the City of Lights? Paris is a gorgeous city that glows every night – 20,000 light bulbs are charged with the task of lighting up the Eiffel tower and there are more than 296 illuminated sites to enjoy when the sun sets. But the legacy of Paris is much more than just sparkle and shine. Paris was the birthplace of the Age of Enlightenment and was known as a center of education and ideas throughout Europe. The city inspired poets, philosophers, engineers and scientists. The stethoscope, hairdryer and the calculator are just some of the wonders invented in Paris. Of course, the fact that Paris adopted street lighting much earlier than other cities did help the nickname of ‘City of Lights’ stick. But it has less to do with wattage and more to do with intellectual prowess.
