Marjet Brolsma explores the Dutch response to the cultural reorientation in Europe after the First World War. She does this by analysing the cultural criticism voiced by the ‘humanitarian movement’, a heterogeneous movement whose adherents shared a strong anti-rationalism, longed for a better and more humane society and wanted to bring about a ‘spiritual revolution’. Brolsma examines this criticism from a transnational perspective.
