Elias Canetti and the Concept of Europe

This is the second lecture in a series on "German Thinkers and the European Tradition", focusing on the work of writer and philosopher Elias Canetti.

In his Nobel Prize acceptance speech in 1981, Elias Canetti (1905-1994) strikes an ambivalent tone towards ‘Europe’, but at the same time confesses that ‘Europe’ was the most important source for his authorship. This paper will focus on the life and works of Canetti to consider the extent to which the author and his work can be viewed as ‘European’, before setting his guiding concepts into dialogue with conceptions of Europe from the nineteenth century to the present.
