Man and the World


Seven authors, six chapters and ten articles; that is the content of this study. Within it, Jean-Louis Bischoff, Alain Tobelem, Denis Aubin, Noël Imbert-Bouchard, Alexandre and Jean-Noël Vallée, and lastly Antoine Béon (seven authors) discuss spirituality, work, environment, science, communication, publishing and pop culture.

Aspiring to be clear, profound and specific, these reviews aim to offer discernment tools for people (students or otherwise) who are keen on meticulously and efficiently reflecting on contemporary global issues.

Circulating with more ease in what is called globalisation is the ultimate task that the FEDE and its associates have assigned to themselves in this book.

This book aims to provide insights into the economic and social evolution of Man in a globalised world. It is a combination of economic, sociological, historical, political, legal and communication skills. It offers tools for understanding  the globalised world and Man’s place in its organisation.
