Civic education is a subject we cannot afford to abandon in this day and age. It teaches us about fundamental rights, the concepts of equality and fraternity. In a textbook aimed at 12 to 13 year-olds, schools publisher Belin uses Antoine de Saint-Exupéry as an example to explain the concept of multiple identities. The book cites the author of the Little Prince on the grounds of his many fields of knowledge and experience, as a pilot for first l’Aéropostale and then the army, as a writer, journalist, etc.
It also addresses the concept of posterity, looking at the mark Saint-Exupéry has left on history and in people’s memories.
