This paper aims to explore the idea of Europe as a premise for constructing the identity of the European citizen. In our opinion, this model of metaphysical reporting to a fundamental unity of the world is philosophical, originating in Plato’s theory of ideas, but has spread at the level of European political thinking through the imperial idea and the repeated attempts to revive the Roman Empire. The political model of the European Union translates this idea of Oneness – many constituting a single political organization – such as the union of the states, that although keeps its sovereign character, it devolves part of its sovereignty to institutions constituted at the level of the Union. What is more, European citizenship doesn’t replace national citizenship, but is additional. We will present the constitutive values of the European cultural model and their translation in political institutions.


United Europe; European citizenship; the idea of Europe; cosmopolitan; European cultural model.
