In fact, the idea of Europe as a continent is more of a historical holdover than anything that can be objectively justified. There is no continental divide between Europe and Asia, (hence "Eurasian tectonic plate") and some even regard Europe as an Asian subcontinent with delusions of grandeur. Because of this, the exact definition of "Europe" has fluctuated wildly over time - for example, ''TheIronMan'' includes the line "all the countries of Europe can fit easily into Australia", which may confuse many modern readers unless they know that, to Ted Hughes, "Europe" stopped at the UsefulNotes/IronCurtain. Areas whose "Europeanness" are open to debate include the [[UsefulNotes/WithEuropeButNotOfIt British Isles]], Scandinavia, Cyprus, Turkey, Russia west of the Urals, the Caucasus, etc. Europe is also sometimes merged with UsefulNotes/{{Asia}} as Eurasia or UsefulNotes/{{Africa}} and Asia as Afroeurasia as a result of this.

Useful Notes on the birthplace of Western civilization. Europe is by far the most historically important continent of the world, with many famous artists, philosophers, scientists and their inventions originating from Europe, the origin of Democracy being Europe, many of the world's strongest and most famous empires starting and ending in Europe, and European culture and influence spreading to most of the world's other continents.

Note that some of the states mentioned below are usually considered European for cultural rather than geographical reasons, like Georgia, Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan (near the border between continents, but technically Asian) or Cyprus and Armenia (geographically entirely Asian), while the "Europeanness" of Russia and Turkey has been disputed for centuries (and in any case, both have the majority of their territory in Asia).
