Summary/Abstract: In his book Vernunft und Intersubjektivität [Reason and Intersubjectivity] Marek Siemek tried to elaborate the “foundations of European identity”, which originated from reasonable intersubjectivity. This identity emerged from the times of ancient Greek, above all in practical philosophy, especially in ethics, pedagogy and politics. These are the domains that Siemek shed light on through the prism of fundamental Greece concepts, such as polis and logos, to then – mainly within the topos of classical German philosophy – address the contemporary question of the unity of Europe. This chapter explores the issues of political philosophy from this perspective.
