Pascal Bruckner is a French philosopher based in Paris. He is the author of bestselling novels, including Lunes de Fiel [Evil Angels] (also a Roman Polanski film of the name Bitter Moon); Parias and Le Divin Enfant [The Divine Child], and essays critical of the hackneyed clichés of solidarity with the third world and of “triumphant democracy“, “dictatorship of the economy“, “tyranny of guilt“ as well as the “art of loving“, as expressed in the manifesto The New Love Disorder, written jointly with Alain Finkielkraut.
Pascal Bruckner was born in Paris and after a childhood in Austria he studied at the prestigious Lycée Henri-IV, the Sorbonne and the École Pratique des Hautes Études. He has taught at the State University of San Diego (California) and currently teaches at New York University and the Institut d’Études Politiques in Paris.
