However, there are not many people who know the real France and how the country is largely overestimated by the world audience and French citizens.This book will provide readers with an unusual and informative overview of the country from an insider prospective. Unlike those of Wikipedia or Lonely planet this guide will not provide your typical travel information. Instead you will read about all the ‘little secrets’ of France that is unavailable in your every day travel guidebooks.French Secrets’ is written on the basis of Modus Tollendo Tollens (the mode which denies by denying) that defies what is commonly known among people by exposing political, social, cultural, economical, historical, industrial unknown facts.For example, France is well known as the country of beauty but you will find that this definition is not true in this book, and readers will discover hidden facts that bring raise doubt to their previous belief and knowledge.Directly exposing unknown facts is ‘Knowing the truth.’ A truth that is crucial to people with specific purposes such as business, trade, studying, conference, vacation, etc. For this reason, this book includes scientific studies that have been interpreted into philosophical terms.For example, the British often describe the French as ‘rude, arrogant and selfish.’ This insider’s guide will explain why they feel this way with concerned scientific statistics.This book is, therefore, easy to read, useful, full of information, and with humorous insight.Both Global standard and Cultural relativity are represented in this book. Because each country has different social values that are generated from different historical experiences, there are still common human values that are called ‘Global standards’ in this book.This is because in spite of their differences in nationality and ethnics human beings share the same biological and social needs in their lives. Biological living conditions, freedom of speech, being polite to others, being socially responsible, health care, education, housing, etc they are all equally important to every human being. Global standards are therefore defined as Ethical requirements in this book.However the Cultural relativity otherwise known as the Locality cannot be disregarded because this is a realistic requirement for safety and respect while visiting a different world.For instance, The Islamic system may be viewed as democratic to Muslims because they are living in a different world that is ruled by ‘Theocratic democracy’ and it is based on their scriptures. It is unlike our ‘Secular democracy or Humanistic democracy’ that are based on a constitution.These kinds of disputes are also found in the western world even though we share the same Christianity based civilization. The hostility between Socialist democracy and Capitalist democracy or ethnic conflicts between the Aryan and the Slav are examples of these as well.In conclusion, the philosophical balance becomes critically important when we review a country because a creditable conclusion is deductible only when the inference is true.
