Philosopher. Known as one of the most important exponents of the Phenomenology. Graduated in Philosophy at the University of Lyon in 1930, he obtained his Doctorate in Literature with the publication of the essays", La Structure du comportement" and "Phénoménologie de la perception". After several years of teaching in some Lycées, in 1948 was appointed Professor at the University of Lyon, and the following year he obtained the Chair of Philosophy at the Sorbonne in Paris. Since 1952, he was also Professor at the Collège de France. His ideas were heavily influenced by Husserl, the founder of Phenomenology. However, in the following years his thought evolved towards positions closer to Existentialism, and therefore closer to the thesis of Jean Paul Sartre and Martin Heidegger. After 1945, the year of the doctorate, has written other works, including "Humanisme et terreur. Essais sur le probleme communiste" and "Les aventures de la dialectical".
