Lecture 21
Europe As an Intellectual Space:
o It appears that this cultural context, this Europe considered as a mental space is for
many of the authors in contrast to politicians unconnected to geographical
boundaries. And this is tue ee if they oside ad ealuate Euope’s detahet
from the geographical in very different terms.
o Adolf Musch: Europe tends to be an intellectual position
o Andrei Bitov: thinks that one can be a European anywhere
o Emil Tode: there is nowhere that is not Europe
o Panos Loannides: the tes Euope ad Euopea ot oly defie the speifi
geographical area and its history, but something bigger and wider: they define man
himself.
Europe’s Best “elf:
o Europe has had ample opportunity to beoe auaited ith its ost self.
o Ivan Štrpka: this would better serve the European project than would any definition of
a liited spae. Today I ould’t desie Euope as a otiet, oe as a fo-
creating context. It is an open context in the midst of other contexts. It is writing itself.
It is as open as the sea and it continues to open itself, bridgeable, overlayered with
contexts ... We are writing ourselves. We are writing Europe. On a clean page? Or on a
new palimpsest?
L’Europe Existe, en Miniature:
o Hoee diese the thity-three European voices that assembled here may have been
in terms of their perspectives and positions, their experiences, expectations, hopes
and assessments the multiperspective image of Europe that they draw in their essays
demonstrates one thing: a centralized, compact identical, exclusive, disassociating, and
fotified Euope ill ot e aeptale to ites. …Pehaps these ideas of a Euope of
difference, experienced by people as an exchange and a growing network, conceal more
that could be used in the construction of an open, dynamic, flexible, and dialogically
cultural identity than does an identity debate based on abstract general principles and
standardized political and economic rules
