Etienne Balibar (°1942) is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris-X. As one of Louis Althusser’s most brilliant students in the 1960s, Etienne Balibar contributed to the collective theoretical masterpiece of Reading Capital. Since then he has established himself amongst the most subtle philosophical and political thinkers in France. He has worked extensively on general problematics such as the theme of universalism and difference. He has also addressed topical questions such as European racism, the notion of the border, whether a European citizenship is possible or desirable, violence and politics, identity and emancipation. His books include Reading Capital (with Louis Althusser, New Left Books 1970), Race, Nation, Class (with Immanuel Wallerstein, Verso 1991), The Philosophy of Marx, Spinoza and Politics, Politics and the Other Scene (Verso 2002), and We, the People of Europe? Reflections on Transnational Citizenship (Princeton University Press 2004).
