Summary/Abstract: The paper discusses the confrotation between Serbian and Slovenian intellectuals (literary historians and writers, philosophers, sociologists, political theorists) in the years before the breakup of Yugoslavia. They were the leaders of “a new wave” which had fundamentally shaken communist Yugoslavia and in the end led to its breakdown. The Serbian and Slovenian intellectual scenes positioned themselves as an alternative to the political system in their republics. Writers had a special places in that process by reviving the old romantic narrative about “the defence of the nation”.
