No culture, no Europe : on the foundation of politics / Pascal Gielen (ed.)

Gielen, Pascal [ed.].
ISBN: 9789492095039.Publisher: Amsterdam : Valiz, 2015Description: 224 p.Series: Antennae15: Online resources: Ressenya a Interacció Summary: Over the past decade, the European Union has been experiencing a drawn-out crisis, politically as well as economically. From the debate about this crisis an important element is missing: culture. Faith in politics is first and foremost a cultural issue; democracy is a matter of political culture. Culture as a shared frame of reference and as something that lends meaning to people's lives is not the superstructure but the very foundation of all societies. No Culture, No Europe analyses theoretical models and provides straightforward examples that clarify the central proposition of this book: culture is the basic source to give meaning and form to societies. Culture is the essential, binding fabric of investigating and assessing identity, human activities and political awareness, enabling us to act politically. The European project will never succeed if it does not recognize culture as its main raison d'être. (Font. Editor)
