Abstract: The present study explores the possibility of a philosophical interpretation of eurosceptical position in the current political discussion on the European Union. In outline it introduces the roots of european philosophical sceptical tradition and its rebirth by selected personalities of early modern thought. It searches relevant philosophical motifs, useful in understanding of the demands of eurosceptical movements and parties, and their analogies in the standpoints which we hear in current political debates. With the help of classical sceptical theory the paper offers a redefinition of possible approaches to the problematics of the european integration and compares it with the standard politological view.
