LA EUROPA DE MIGUEL DE UNAMUNO
EL CONFLICTO COMO CAMINO HACIA UN NUEVO HUMANISMO
Natalia Rodríguez Martín
In the context of the current proliferation of a protectionist and xenophobic nationalism in Europe, the United States and the rest of the world, this article aims to analyze Unamuno’s ideas of an europeanization of Spain and an hispanization of Europe like two facets of the same cultural and political dialectic (this opposed to various interpretations of Unamuno’s thinking). This theory is used as a model to deal with the relations between national cultures as well as every nation relations with supranational communities. Within this context, imposition plays a central role, in so far it brings to the development of solidarity within the conflict, which is why Unamuno’s theory leads to a humanism which only can emerge in the encounter between human beings and cultures.
