Jacques Brunschwig (1929–)

Currently Professor Emeritus at the University of Paris I (Sorbonne), Jacques Brunschwig is one of France’s leading experts on the history of ancient philosophy, specifically the works of Aristotle. The cousin of the eminent historian of antiquity, Pierre Vidal-Naquet, Brunschwig is himself also recognised as an authority in the field. In addition to his work on Aristotle, Brunschwig has also written articles about, and edited works of, Descartes and Leibniz. His contribution to the Cahiers pour l’Analyse appears at the beginning of volume ten, and is an assessment of the peculiar nature of ‘formal’ thought in Aristotle’s system that draws out its implications for the project of formalisation more generally.
