Man and Europe


A tour of Europe in ten articles: that is the proposal of this book. The menu of this publication includes reviews of biomedical ethics, specificities of education, the most popular tourist destinations and the humanistic dimension of the Union. Written by experts (journalists, lecturers-researchers, lawyers, etc.), this study aims to serve as a tool to better tackle the European issues of today.

Yet, “today inevitably supposes a yesterday and a tomorrow”; hence the specific reflections on the genesis and background of the construction of Europe and the European project for future generations.

True to its educational vocation, the FEDE intends to demonstrate through the publication of this book that education and seduction are words that pair up very well.

This book aims to provide insights into the economic and social evolution of Man in Europe. It is a combination of economic, sociological, historical, political, legal and even communication skills. It offers the tools to understand Europe and Man’s role in its territory.
