Zur Kultur der europäischen Vereinigung

Nexus Lecure Richard von Weizsäcker

There exists a shared European culture, which connects the Europeans beyond all of their deeper conflicts. On the threshold of the twenty-first century, at a moment when the European Union is preparing a large expansion, Richard von Weizsäcker describes this culture. But he also points out that it is threatened by the crisis of liberal societies, which causes economic interests to always prevail over social cohesion.
