Philosopher

France

Regarded as a member of the French New Philosophers who supported the 1960’s protest movement and opposed the Communist regimes in Eastern Europe. Author of "The Master Thinkers (Les Maîtres Penseurs, 1977)" and "Dostoevsky in Manhattan (Dostoïevski à Manhattan, 2002)". His most recent book, "The Two Ways of Philosophy" opposes dissident Socratism and post-modern Heideggerianism. Throughout recent crises, he has been a consistently outspoken advocate of the “devoir d’ingérence” or the “duty to interfere”. He sustained the democratic anti-integrism in Afghanistan and Algeria. From their outset, he wrote against the wars of Yeltsin and Putin in Chechnya and Georgia.
