In his article, Václav Bělohradský shows that Masaryk’s anti-political concept of humanism as ‘the essence of the nation’, which we must accept, herald, and guard as the meaning of national life, is a mystifying culmination of the past and one of the keys to the political catastrophes of modern Czech statehood. It also highlights the consequences of the hegemony of anti-political national essentialism.
