Europe beyond Europe
Patočka's concept of care for the soul and mencius. an intercultural consideration
The present chapter is a modest attempt to sketch an answer to the following questions: What is Patočka's concept of Europe? To what extent can his reflections on Europe, as those of a phenomenological philosopher from the "other Europe," avoid the Eurocentric overtones of their Husserlian counterpart? Can Patočka's conception of Europe lead to a non-Eurocentric reformulation of universalizable elements of European humanity, in such a way as to contribute to the enhancement of intercultural understanding?
