What is a Nation in Nationalism?

The very excellent Efriam Podoksik has a timely paper published in The Journal of Political Philosophy: Volume 25, Number 3, 2017, pp. 303–323.

Challenging this dichotomy I suggested a tripartite scheme where nation as a self-sufficient high-culture community is the centre, whereas civic community and ethnic group are its peripheral mutations. Contrary to the common stereotype, these mutations are valid only for a small number of cases, from which the feeling that nation is also a high-culture community is never fully absent.
