Abstract
The article concerns the ideology of colonization, specifics of emergence and development of the French colonial culture. The colonial idea and culture allowed the metropolitan state’s inhabitants to socialize a new perception of the specifics of colonial nations. By establishing the hierarchy of the colonized “races”, and, therefore, the value of their human capital, theoretical and individual racism were instrumental to the realization by the Frenchmen their affiliation to the single nation and to shaping of their national identity.
