Philosophy and the Future of Europe

This issue of our journal is exceptionally multilingual in order to emphasize the value of that particular variety of national traditions which the European Union is supposed to have maintained and harmonized. We underwent the last phase of editorial processing in the middle of the most symbolic crisis that the EU has experienced since its inception: the concrete risk of the so-called “Grexit” – the Greek referendary “no” to austerity conditions imposed upon the extension of their European loan. We have witnessed the eleventh hour negotiations that prevented the country where the very idea of Europe first took root, from quitting the Eurozone if not the European Union itself. We are now witnessing the global choc of a terror attack on the heart of Europe and against the city which is the very symbol of European Enlightenment: Paris. Hence this issue of the journal could not be more timely, even in its title: Philosophy – and the Future of Europe.
