European dimensions

  1. 1.  United Kingdom  French Guyana  Israel  Russia  Turkey  Georgia
  2. 2.  Europe's eastern frontier is now commonly delineated by the Ural Mountains in Russia..  The southeast boundary with Asia is not universally defined, with the Ural River, or alternatively, the Emba River most commonly serving as possible boundaries. The boundary continues to the Caspian Sea, the crest of the Caucasus Mountains or, alternatively, the Kura River in the Caucasus, and on to the Black Sea; the Bosporus, the Sea of Marmara, Dardanelles, and the Aegean Sea conclude the Asian boundary.  The Mediterranean Sea to the south separates Europe from Africa.  The western boundary is the Atlantic Ocean; Iceland, though nearer to Greenland (North America) than mainland Europe, is generally included in Europe.
  3. 3.  Because of sociopolitical and cultural differences, there are various descriptions of Europe's boundary; For instance, geographers from Russia and other post-Soviet states generally include the Urals in Europe while including Caucasia in Asia. Similarly, Cyprus is approximate to Anatolia (or Asia Minor), but is often considered part of Europe and currently is a member state of the EU. In addition, Malta was considered an island of Africa for centuries.  Western sources, such as the National Geographic Society, usually state that the Europe-Asia boundary follows the watershed of the Ural Mountains to the source of the Ural River, then follows that river to the Caspian Sea. The border then follows the watershed of the Caucasus Mountains from the Caspian Sea to the Black Sea. According to this definition, there are 4 transcontinental countries: ◦ Azerbaijan - situated in Eastern Europe and Western Asia. ◦ Georgia - situated in Eastern Europe and Western Asia.[1] ◦ Kazakhstan - situated in Central Asia and Eastern Europe. ◦ Russia - situated in Northern Asia and Eastern Europe. ◦ Turkey - situated in Western Asia and Eastern Europe.

  8. 8. • “ The foundation of European culture was laid by the Greeks, strengthened by the Romans, stabilized by Christianity, reformed and modernized by the fifteenth-century Renaissance and Reformation and globalized by successive European empires between the sixteenth and twentieth centuries, including predominantly Muslim Ottoman Turks. Thus the European Culture developed into a very complex phenomenon of wider range of philosophy, Islamic mysticism, Christian and secular humanism, rational way of life and logical thinking developed through a long age of change and formation with the experiments of enlightenment, naturalism, romanticism, science, democracy, and socialism. Because of its global connection, the European culture grew with an all-inclusive urge to adopt, adapt and ultimately influence other trends of culture. As a matter of fact, therefore, from the middle of the nineteenth century with the expansion of European education and the spread of Christianity, European culture and way of life, to a great extent, turned to be "global culture," if anything has to be so named” (Wikipedia, Sailen Debnath, "Secularism: Western and Indian," Atlantic Publishers, New Delhi)
