Créative France is a story and women are a part of this story. Women who use their knowledge of the intangible world of thought to make real improvements to everyday life. Philosophers like Cynthia Fleury, who asks questions today to lay the foundation for tomorrow.
It’s the story of Cynthia Fleury, a philosopher whose decisively modern approach makes her research relevant to people’s everyday lives. The psychoanalyst and philosopher has chosen to devote her career to studying philosophy as it applies to politics. She highlights the things that don’t work or no longer work properly in the French political system in a bid to incite progress and improve quality of life for all of France’s citizens. Keenly observant and always ready to question what it is that defines France and makes it what it is today, Cynthia Fleury is not one to limit the scope of her field: she applies philosophy to even the most concrete domains. Her work on medicine – she is a member of the philosophy chair at Paris’s Hôtel-Dieu Hospital, which engages in both teaching and research – is just one example. The organization has won over French medical professionals and has begun to interest other nations as well. It’s the story of a woman who has come to understand the way France thinks and uses her understanding to help the country improve its way of thinking.
