520    This research focuses on the development of the European 
       Union and on the primary treaties that have been adopted 
       over time and have helped define the goals and structure 
       of the European Union. A comparative content analysis of 
       additions and amendments to primary European Union 
       treaties provides a metaperspective of the treaty process,
       revealing a pattern of EU development, shedding light on 
       EU integration and on the extent that incremental changes 
       to the treaties may be the manifestation of an evolving 
       shared vision within the European Union. Also considered 
       is the role of text in reifying belief systems and 
       legitimizing institutions. The analysis confirms that the 
       economic foundations established with the European Coal 
       and Steel Community in 1952, and with the European 
       economic Community in 1958 continue to be at the heart of 
       the European Union even as the European Union has expanded
       into non-economic areas
