Las raíces de una Europa en crisis

Download PDF

This paper analyzes the roots of the idea of Europe in philosophy as a theory of theoretical and practical rationality. To this end, it compares the proposal Edmund Husserl made after the First World War in several writings –ranging from 1922 to 1936– to refound Europe into a culture of rationality whose models are classical philosophers, but in the context of the current European Union crisis, where in spite of both its single currency and its parliament it is in deep need for cultural, rational and axiological legitimation.
