N2 - In this article I explore how philosophical thinking about God, reason,humanity and history has shaped ideas of Europe, focusing on Hegel. ForHegel, Europe is the civilization that, by way of Christianity, hasadvanced the spirit of freedom which originated in Greece. Hegel is aEurocentrist whose work indicates how Eurocentrism as a broader discoursehas shaped received conceptions of Europe. I then distinguish‘external’ and ‘internal’ ways of approaching ideas of Europe and defendthe former approach, on which Europe’s self-understanding is not a phenomenon purely internal to Europe, but has always been shaped byEurope’s relations with non-European cultures. I note Egypt’s influence onthe ancient Greeks and the role of Europe’s colonization of America, andsuggest that European civilization could be rejuvenated by more openacknowledgement of these relations with others.
