Abstract

The new European governance seems to depart not only from the classic legitimacy foundations (the social contract, the nation, the people), but also from the weberian dimension of legality, due to the huge discretional spaces left for the technocratic institutions of the Union. There are two key words to seriously understand the ‘enigma’ of consensus of which the EU institutions continue to enjoy. The first key word is rationality: the idea of the European power as a power able to interpret, decode and regulate the markets truth. The second word is salvation: the promise aimed at the European people that they are subject to an economic expertise with a view to their survival and well-being.
