Catherine Audard


Catherine Audard is the Chair and co-founder of the Forum for European Philosophy, which was created in 1996 and is based at the European Institute of the London School of Economics, with the ambition of bridging the gap between so-called 'continental' and 'analytic' philosophy. She is a philosophy graduate of the École Normale Supérieure and the Sorbonne in Paris. She has been teaching continental philosophy as well as moral and political philosophy since 1991 at the LSE, Department of Philosophy. She is also teaching regularly at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris. Her current concerns are normative issues in political theory: justice and equality, citizenship, multiculturalism, liberalism, republicanism and deliberative democracy. She has published numerous articles on these topics in various journals and collections. She has also published translations into French of works by John Stuart Mill and John Rawls. Her most recent book is Anthologie historique et critique de l'utilitarisme in three volumes (Paris, PUF, 1999). She is currently finishing a book on Citoyenneté et individualité morale.

This academic year, she is invited to give talks to Aix en Provence (Centre for Philosophy of Economics), Paris (Ecole Normale Superieure and Université de Paris-I), Lille (Université de Lille-III), Singapore (National University of Singapore, Philosophy Department), Brussels (Facultés Universitaires Saint-Louis), New York (New School for Social Research), Québec City (Université Laval), Bucharest (Department of Philosophy and College of Europe) and Sweden (Engelsberg Seminar, Axel Johnson Foundation).
