The French have no concept whatsoever of philosophy - it just happens that very simple things confuse the Frenchman. For example, when Eric Cantona remarked "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea", he wasn't being metaphysical - he had only just realised that this is what the seagulls were doing. And Descartes was secretly Australian.
