the first European festival on creativity

2014 Programme

Event #10

Mauro Ceruti

Europe Risks a New Self-Destruction

Europe must return to its vital source: problematization. And it must first of all problematize itself, regenerating the founding principle of its identity: the principle of unity in diversity, and diversity in unity. Only by rediscovering and taking root in its own tradition can Europe exploit the great opportunity of having a future. It is necessary to regenerate the face of European humanism that exalted the value and dignity of every human being, whoever he or she may be, from wherever he or she may come; the humanism of human rights, the rights of women, liberty-equality-brotherhood, democracy, solidarity. Planetary humanism is concrete humanism: it does not oppose the diverse to the individual, the singular to the general. A consciousness of planetary problems cannot exist without thinking that is capable of connecting the still unconnected notions and the still compartmental thoughts.
