ABSTRACT
The unequal weighting of cultural views within the current European context stemmed largely from a preference for more quantitative type analysis which lack the ability to explain the changes that lead to today’s reality and tomorrow’s future. We argue that the demographic formation of today’s European society has been accompanied by the formation of a new type of cultural model. The contrast between the “Europe normal” as we were used to perceived Europe and “Europe crisis” as currently Europe is depicted clearly depends also on a change in the cultural construct . We argue that the development of a new cultural model has been accompanied by a new type of population development. It can be seen that in its pervasiveness, cultural change, threatens to undermine economic development, inscribed in the European policy. The current more robust cultural model comprises the cultural life of the European citizen. This study wishes to fill a gap in today’s research. We desire to widen the scope so as to capture the place of the cultural European model within the order of things which is no longer clearly fixed and legitimated by the same binding cultural system of beliefs and values. This abstract is naturally a sketch and deliberately so, but the study promises to be less condensed and more complex. We seek to indicate central and pertinent developments in the European framework.
