  Abstract:  It is indispensable and appropriate to distinguish between the geographical belonging to Europe: location between the Atlantic and the Urals, the traditional geographical limits of the continent; the historical belonging to Europe: participation in the movements that have resulted in the institutional and cultural forms of the continent, from the establishment of polis, through the contact with the Judeo-Christian tradition, the modern revolutions in knowledge, economy and law, to the defence of the fundaments of the free society; the institutional belonging to Europe: the embodying of the organisations and legal framework of the open society; and the cultural belonging to Europe: cultivating a certain attitude in knowledge and in practical life, characterised by trust in factual analysis, fallibilisms and in the cultivation of the critical spirit.
