Josep Ramon Llobera. Intellectual precursor of contemporary nationalism
Josep Ramon Llobera was known by some of us, his students, as El Mestre. This term seemed to encapsulate the role he played for us which went much further than being a teacher, but someone who was a mentor and true renaissance figure drawing on his broad education in economics, history, social science and knowledge of different European languages and disciplinary traditions to inspire and support us. Of course he also became a great friend who expressed true delight in the company of those whose ideas he had shaped.
