Submitted by Eric W. Fraunholz on Mon, 07/07/2014 - 09:10

On Wednesday, 2 July 2014, Prof. Michel Gueldry from the Monterey Institute of International Studies gave a lecture on transatlantic relations and difference between the United States and Europe.

In a lively and interesting talk, Prof. Gueldry sought to determine main transatlantic differences while both sides have the same philosophical and cultural foundation.

In his discussion, Prof. Gueldry followed three main points to illustrate the complex issue of transatlantic relations: The overall paradox of the West reflected in the philosophical ideal versus the actual political reality, the different notions of nationalism on both sides of the Atlantic, and the both cherished and challenged concept of American exceptionalism.

Prof. Gueldry's talk addressed several provocative ideas that certainly invited participants to rethink transatlantic relations.
