Ideea europeană în istorie
The European Idea throughout History
Abstract (Rezumat în limba engleză): Nowadays we are passing through a change of paradigm, after the radical rupture with the European idea generated by the dividing, for half a century, of our continent. This study analyses the origins and specifics of Europe, as well as the slow evolution of the European idea, up until modern times. It also relieves the proceedings of gradual affirmation of the European identity consciousness, also expressed by the elaboration of numerous projects to achieve an institutional and politic unity of Europe, projects that have been made available for practice in the after war period.
