Well, the question is pretty clear. How would you describe romanticism to a 14 years old?
This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions on the definitions or semantics of words or phrases are off-topic here as they are already well-answered elsewhere. There are many fine dictionaries available on The Internet, and Wikipedia offers good introductions to most common schools of philosophy." – Keelan, Lukas, virmaior
One source I can direct you to is a very helpful video on the history of romanticism.
As the information at the bottom states,
"Romanticism is a historical movement that still hugely colours how we tend to feel and look at the world: it’s responsible for the way we approach love, nature, business and children."
For me, that is the best opportunity to explain the concept of romanticism to anyone not familiar with the history of philosophy.
