The many European empires are now reduced to a multiplicity of ethnicities, traditions, and civilizations. Europe will never be One, but to survive as a union it will have to become a federation of 'islands' both distinct and connected. Though drawing on philosophers of Europe's past, Cacciari calls not to resist Europe's sunset but to embrace it.

Though scarcely alive in today's politics, the political unity of Europe is still a necessity, however impossible it seems to achieve"--"@en ;
