Europe United in DiversityAn Analogical Hermeneutics Perspective

Pablo Jiménez Lobeira

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


At a moment when a new crisis threatens Europea crisis including, among other factors, COVID-19, a faltering economy, immigration and Brexitthe European Union (EU) motto of Europe united in diversity would appear progressively less attainable. This paper submits that the European ideal is still both desirable and possible through fostering of political unity at the constitutional (regime) level by using the notions of analogical state and analogical culture, and at the community level by enabling public sphere secularity and relational interculturalism. These concepts envisage the EU in a more flexible manner, in favour of policies enabling further European integration.
