Europe beyond universalism and particularism

Czajka, Agnes (2016). Europe beyond universalism and particularism. Contemporary Political Theory, 15(1) e29-e31.



[Book review] Born of a 3-year project titled ‘Rethinking Cultural Diversity in Europe: Beyond Universalism and Particularism’, and positioned as an ‘interdisciplinary dialogue between continental philosophy, political theory and international relations’, Europe Beyond Universalism and Particularism aims at nothing short of ‘develop[ing] a new concept of universality’ to inform a new European politics (p. 4-5). Although the universalities the contributors to this volume explore are not entirely new, the interminable crises of ‘old’ and ‘new’ Europe testify to the value and timeliness of considering them anew, and exploring the possibilities they open for both European politics and Europe as a political project.
