In the early years of the First World War, a young Serb, Dimitrije Mitrinovic, appeared in the intellectual and artistic circles of London, arguing that the way to a harmonious world lay through the creation of a “world consciousness” in the minds of individuals. He launched a welter of groups, movements and other initiatives to promote and embody his vision of the world as an organic whole.
