Book abstract: Such a reflexion for we all which start to believe in this Europe moving imposes. It is initially a question of wondering about the genesis of this awakening of Europe, on the basis of its remote roots and following its strong times: the oikouménê of the Greeks, the Nostrum Pond and Respublica christiana, Papacy and Holy roman Empire at the Average Age. The awakening of the “European” man will crystallize around the various “European identities” (that of the humanism and the Discoverers of the Rebirth, of the Reform in the Counter-Reformation, Europe of the Lights to its heirs (current of liberalism, Marxism, socialism)… To wonder about Europe, it is also to observe the various ways of thinking universalism and their political and social consequences: thus the universal one of Europe under the French revolution, the industrial revolution, the dynamism of the colonial expansions and the impulses missionaries of the Occident.
It is also to wonder which are the collective representations which it caused in the past and the present. More than ever it is also the world vis-a-vis in Europe which it is a question of observing: how, nonEuropean contributions - in the field of sciences, technology, arts, the ways of life - did they count? Does Europe really represent for the rest of the world a political, economic, cultural entity that it is necessary to imitate or reject?
