Federalism and the French Revolution: Towards an understanding of French Republicanism

Even today, in the twenty-first century, the tendency towards centralization of power is strong in France. Now, however, at least in Europe with the creation of the EU, the framework of the unitary state itself is in question. Therefore, in such an environment is centralization as can be seen in France still acceptable? In order to answer this question, we shall examine the French people’s understanding of the state through a study of the French Revolution; the cradle of the French nation state. For this research, we will examine the concept of the one and indivisible republic and federalism from both the philosophical and the linguistic points of view.
