The Cultural Values of Europe

Peter Wagner

Liverpool University Press

This concluding chapter discusses the possibility of Europe having a cultural identity. It begins by examining the concept of identity, assumptions of European identity and the concept of culture. It then outlines the elements of Europe's cultural identity at present. The chapter shows that there is little question of there having been a European identity and argues that European history was a history of political and cultural challenges dealt with through new borders, divisions and schisms.

Keywords:   cultural identity, identity, European identity, culture, borders, divisions, schisms
