Setting out from the debate on European integration, with special reference to the German-language area, the author breaks the positions analysed down into two distinct groups: on the one hand, supporters of a holistic model of politics, whose prime concern is to protect the cohesion of the socio-political community; on the other, those who place the onus on the individual’s right to self-realisation. The insufficiency and the internal dialectics of both attitudes opens the way for a third hypothesis which, in so far as it is more conceptual, allows us to identify a specific plan for European politics which transcends national cultures without lapsing into purely technocratic management of the community.
