About the Author

Emmanuel Falque is Honorary Dean of the Faculty of Philosophy at the Catholic University of Paris. He is well known for writings that combine an expertise in medieval philosophy, modern French phenomenology, and theology. His recent publications include Passer le Rubicon [Crossing the Rubicon] (2013), Saint Bonaventure et l'entree de Dieu en theologie (2000); Dieu, la chair et l'autre [God, the Flesh and the Other] (2008) and the trilogy: Le passseur de Gethsemani (1999), Metamorphose de la finitude [Metamorphosis of Finitude] (2004), and Les Noces de l'Agneau [The Wedding Feast of the Lamb] (2011). His works have been translated into English, Spanish, and Italian.


This book provides an excellent introduction to the major French phenomenologists of the 20th century by a preeminent thinker of the younger generation of French philosophers, personally acquainted with many of them. Falque not only gives a lucid introduction to his predecessors, but brings a unique critical perspective to their work and puts them into productive conversation with each other. -- Christina M. Gschwandtner, Professor of Philosophy, Fordham University
In a time when philosophy is too often oriented toward the conversion of the other, Emmanuel Falque invites us to see genuine philosophy as a conversation with others such that we might be transformed ourselves. Modeling how criticism is a form of care, Falque opens French phenomenology to itself and opens us up to it. -- J. Aaron Simmons, Furman University
