Abstract: This dissertation looks into the history of the study of nationalism and philosophy’s place in it, with particular reference to two prominent theorists of nationalism, namely the British Czech philosopher and social anthropologist, Ernest Gellner, author of Nations and Nationalism, and the Chinese born Irish historian and political scientist, Benedict Anderson, known mostly for his Imagined Communities What the Information Age means to the study of nationalism is also examined, by asking what t he implications of the globalised world to the nation state are. In doing so, the dissertation, with reference to McLuhan’s philosophy, delves into the question of what the contemporary relevance of the nation state might be, and argues that the modern emphasis on the globalised world over the nation state occurs through the disregard of both fact and theory.
