mother which counterbalance, but do not erase, this interpretation. They thence offer us a third way of interpreting Bacon’s familial images. The mother is placed on the right of the father, which explicitly places the mother’s relationship to the father typologically parallel to both the scriptural representation of the relationship between Christ and God, as well as between the Church and God: ‘hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power’ (Matthew, 26: 64). Scriptural and theological accounts of the relationship between God and his people

unavoidable use of military force by NATO (complete with ‘collateral damage’), a choice between ethnic cleansing and NATO bombing. Apart from the fact that a ‘third way’ can often be envisaged (for example, an earnest search for a political solution or the use of economic mechanisms of ‘seduction’, whereby instead of bombing the enemy into submission one can buy him into agreement by allocating just a

identity at the European level that could underpin the development of a common foreign policy. Values could collide at that level. In this case, there is a third way that might provide the basis for cooperation other than one based on values. To assess the validity of different perspectives, and to resolve collisions between different norms and different ideas of the good life, it would be necessary to find

the saltimbanque evoked both the pre-industrial past and more recent crises in Fordist modernity, including, crucially, the festive energies of May 1968. Kristin Ross has called May 1968 the ‘confirming afterthought’ of France’s postwar modernization.13 During the postwar decades, France sought a ‘third way’ between American-style capitalism and Soviet-style socialism, neither of which was particularly attractive. But ultimately it became a consumer society in the model of the United States: mass production facilitated mass consumption, and a combination of job

towards statist and militarist thinking and a foreign policy preference for pro-Western or European-neutralist approaches’, as well as a fierce anti-communism (Stöss 1988: 37). The parties of the New Nationalism want to find a ‘new political credo’ and look for a so-called ‘third way’; a concept that has always remained rather vague and is mostly used to indicate an economic system different from both capitalism and communism and a foreign policy of a neutral Europe free of both the East and West, i.e. of the United States. There are some problems with Stöss

A solidarist system is an organic structure of smaller and larger communities that blend into one harmonious entity. Without using the term the VB seems to aspire to a ‘third way’, i.e. an alternative societal system to ‘both the liberalistic capitalism of exploitation [and] the Marxist and

alibi to legitimise destruction. But the same strategy can also simply be described as a necessary prioritisation, because everything cannot always stay the same. Preservation must necessarily involve a choice. Priorities are set, selected parts being expected to represent the whole, just as with the metonymic copying and use of spolia in the Middle Ages (cf. Krautheimer 1942 ; 1969). In critical heritage, a third way between preserving and destroying is also proposed: it consists in letting decay take its course, a post-preservation model – mainly with modern

The third way of explaining the development of EU policy towards Latin America is related to the promotion of regional integration abroad. This argument suggests that if there is greater regional integration within Latin America, then it is likely that the EU’s involvement in the region will also increase. The fourth explanation that is offered in the literature relates to the EU’s long

As in many other cultures, in the US there is a widely felt need for something that would give meaning to life and world history. Because of its artificial nature and abstract individuality, this need may, indeed, be particularly strong in the

. Even the term he uses to describe the Union, Staatenverbund – a term inspired by the Bundesverfassungsgericht in its oft-quoted ‘Maastricht ruling’ – is, according to von Boyme,33 practically untranslatable in all but the Swedish language, courtesy of the term Statsförbundet. If, then, such is the confusion over the Union’s present stance, and for that matter Fischer’s conceptual departure, and if no alternative term is offered for the imagined end state, how can one conceptualise Fischer’s ‘third-way’ construct of ‘federation without a state’? A plausible answer is
