Instead I have attempted to trace diff- ent ideological trajectories these have crossed and re-crossed each other the course of the century. Hence, I have tried to compile a genealogy rather than a history, and for this reason it an account which a markedly fragmentary character due in large measure to what one can only call conceptual fluctuations; that to the way which certain ideas rise to the surface at a given moment, are elaborated and after a while abandoned, only to re-emerge later a diff- ent form. Because of this waxing and waning of these ideas over time, this account will often depart from a strict chronological sequence. this end, the material treated under four diff- ent headings; Part Avant-Garde and Continuity, 1887-1986, Part 2: of the 1910-1998, Part 3: Civilization and National 1935-1998 and Part 4: Production, and 1927-1990. The aim of each section to trace the evolution of different paradigms and to show how a particular theme or cultural trope manifests itself in various ways under different historical circumstances.
