The session explores how Europe is a mental project with the basic of European mental tropes of preference to tradition; historical identity; role of subject; worth of science; elementary chains of continuity and instances of dislocation; systemic character of thinking and contingency of thought; and apotheosis of the whole and of disjointed fragment. There is an emphasis on essence or on the surface tissue of events. The authors address the problem of the evolution of relations obtaining between identity mechanisms and moral stances.

Keywords: Europe, Identity, Character of Thinking
