François-David Sebbah is professor of philosophy (“contemporary moral philosophy”) at the Université Paris Nanterre. He was Directeur de Programme at the Collège International de Philosophie, and for many years at the Université de Technologie de Compiègne (UTC/Sorbonne Université). His research is rooted in French phenomenology and post-phenomenology (he has written extensively on Levinas, but he also wrote on Henry, Derrida, and more recently Lyotard) and focuses on ethics and contemporaneity. He is also deeply interested in the philosophy of technics and in the intersection of phenomenology and the cognitive sciences. His recent publications include Testing the Limit : Derrida, Henry, Levinas and the Phenomenological Tradition (Stanford University Press, 2012), Qu’est-ce que la technoscience? (Encre Marine/ Les Belles Lettres, 2010), Lévinas et le contemporain. Les préoccupations de l’heure (Les Solitaires intempestifs, 2009), L’Éthique du survivant. Lévinas, une philosophie de la débâcle (Presses universitaires de Paris Nanterre, “Humanités-Hominités,” 2018)

Ciarán Coyle is a PhD student in philosophy at Fordham University. He is primarily interested in Marxist and Post-Marxist social theory, the nation form, and subsumption.
