The World of Romania

The World of Romania Works that made this planet a better place – Part I –

The Market for Ideas and the students from the class of 2018 of the “International Economic Diplomacy” Master’s Program, from the Faculty of International Business and Economics, of the Bucharest University of Economic Studies, Romania, prepared, in a special dossier, an anthology of what may be noted as cultural-diplomatic, civilization-contextualized answers to a question: “How did Romanian critical thinkers and gifted creators contribute to the thrive of humankind?”

They strove to avoid being overly-parochial or nationalistic. The collection is neither exhaustive nor hierarchical, while the selection has no algorithm whatsoever behind it and no other rationale for the choices than every author-student’s own desire to share ideas on the works of a fellow countryman of repute. It is a “pop” exercise of “science / art journalism”, aimed at outliving Romania’s 2018 Centennial celebration, by “trading abroad” pieces of time-proof contemplation.
