R. D. Anderson

Oxford University Press

Both international scientific cooperation and international tension were growing in the years leading up to the First World War. The war shattered the existing university system, and its internationalism was never fully restored. Nostalgia should not conceal the defects of the pre-1914 universities, but they remain one of the achievements of bourgeois, liberal civilization.

Keywords:   First World War, internationalism, liberal civilization, scientific cooperation
