European Civilization – Constitutive Sources Complex of Identity
European civilization identity contains references to natural sources (the article describes the theory of human mitochondrial DNA and the seven mothers of the population of the present-day Europe) and symbolic sources (Greek philosophy, Roman law, Judeo- -Christian tradition, the cultural heritage of barbarian tribes, the thoughts of the Enlightenment). You can see the outline of the directions in which a European symbolic sphere transformation will take place. Traditional philosophical systems have started to be taken over by postmodernism, recentivism and New Age philosophy. Christianity is being replaced by religious indifference, beliefs of religious sects and Neo-pagan religions. The low fertility rate of the indigenous population of Europe is contrasted with the demographic expansion of Muslim immigrants.
