Jean-Luc Nancy

Jean-Luc Nancy (1940-2021) was one of the great figures of post-modern philosophy and one of the most influential contemporary thinkers. He taught Philosophy at the Université Marc Bloch, Strasbourg and was visiting professor with the universities of Berkeley, Irvine, San Diego and Berlin until he recently retired from his professorship. His work has been acknowledged and praised by academics and the wider international public alike. It comprises a variety of research focuses reaching from the ontology of society to the metamorphosis of reason and the arts, on image studies, and even on political and religious aspects with respect to ongoing developments.
