Author Biography - Andre Comte-Sponville
Professor of Philosophy at the Sorbonne, Andre Comte-Sponville is the author of a number of books, including the international bestseller A Short Treatise on the Great Virtues, which has been translated into 24 languages. In a country that reveres philosophers, Comte-Sponville is latest in a line of French star philosophers that runs from Sartre, through Derrida, Finkielkraut and Berni-Henry Levy. Unlike the last three, his accessibility and refusal to fly in the face of common sense has made him famous across Europe.
