What is Europe? What are the contents of the concept of Europe? And
what defines European identity? Instead of only asking these
classical questions, this volume also explores who asks these
questions, and who is addressed with such questions. Who answers
the questions, from which standpoints and for what reasons? Which
philosophical, historical, religious or political traditions
influence the answers? This book addresses its task in three parts.
The first concentrates on the controversies around the meaning of
Europe. The second focuses on the role of the European Union. The
third discusses Europe and its relations to different types of
otherness, or rather, non-European-ness. The volume produces a
complex and plural picture of the concepts, ideas, debates and
(ex)changes associated with the concept of Europe, and has a clear
significance for today's debates on European identity,
Europeanization, and the EU.
