About the Author

Françoise Dastur is Professeur Emerita at the Université de Nice. Her most recent book to appear in English is How Are We to Confront Death? An Introduction to Philosophy (Fordham).


"In Questions of Phenomenology, Francoise Dastur displays remarkable erudition and originality. The erudition can be seen in the wide range of phenomenological figures that Questioning Phenomenology covers, figures such as Husserl, Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty, of course, but also Levinas, Ric/ur, Gadamer, Patocka, and Fink and even lesser known figures such as Lotze, Medard Boss, and Dilthey. The originality can be seen in the unifying idea of the essays: originary finitude. Finitude is not a weakness, for Dastur, but a resource. Appropriating a phrase of Merleau-Ponty, Dastur shows that the problem of death places phenomenology at its limits. Dastur remains one of our greatest scholars of phenomenology and one of our greatest phenomenological thinkers." -- -Leonard Lawlor Pennsylvania State University
