The European Culture or the Identity of Diversity
The item insistently evoked each time it has been needed to show the common background of the communities which populate the European geographic area has always been culture. Although history has proven that this part of the world is the most affected by conflict and that the technical progress it has generated has developed along with the amplitude of conflicts, the Europeans have always tried to show what unites them, and to consolidate their identity forged in the wars generated by the proclamation of differences. Thus Homo Europaeus was born, each of his traits being the gain of a given historical age: the rational model of knowledge is inherited from the ancient Greeks, the principles of law – from the Romans, historical conscience – from Christianity, economic rationality – from the Protestants of the 18th-19th century, democratic culture – from the Greeks and the modern thinkers (such as Locke, Montesquieu and so on), volunteering – from Illuminist thinkers, the constant return to tradition – from conservatives and nationalists.
