This volume deals with the values of the people in contemporary Europe. Using the survey data from the European Values Study, a number of basic values and the dynamics of value change are explored from an economic, political, social, and religious-moral point of view.
Part 1 focuses on Europe’s values from an empirical-analytical, and a historical point of view, and also presents the views of three eminent Europeans.
Part 2 deals with in-depths analyses of European values, based on the empirical data set covering basic orientations in most of the domains of human life.
Part 3 contains reflections on the empirical findings, the value of value research, the hidden assumptions behind it, and the deeper layers of Europe’s position and developments.
