This chapter focuses on the discussion of the role of political romanticism and national myths in Jabotinsky's youthful weltanschauung (before he became the leader of a political movement), and his use of these elements later on, when the Revisionist movement found itself divided as to how best to wage the struggle for national liberation. It also shows that a duality had long been evident in Jabotinsky's weltanschauung and operative ideology, and in terms of the latter, it was rationalism that tended to prevail.

Keywords:   political romanticism, national myths, Jabotinsky, weltanschauung, Revisionist movement, national liberation, operative ideology, rationalism
