Abstract
This is a critical review of concepts formulated in the 1950's and 1960's by France's four leading strategic thinkers. The purpose of the review is to acquaint the members of the Canadian Defence community with what are, in the author's opinion, substantial French contributions to modern strategic thought to help bridge the chasm in understanding between the Anglo-American way of thinking, rooted in the pragmatic view of reality, and the French mode of reasoning that flows from that peculiar blend of the traditional, the Cartesian, and, more recently, the dialectical perception of reality.
