Abstract

“Europe” is not itself a state, so much as a state of mind. There is, strictly speaking, no “European army,” only a limited military cooperation between states, and that fact alone confronts us with the problem of political unity. Jean Monnet, the great architect of European unity, observed that there is “no Europe without culture.” European defense, in this view, should be formulated in the crucible of this European culture, and, even more, Europe must not represent a myth, but a shared political ideal.
