Prof. Béatrice Han-Pile (Principal Investigator)

Béatrice Han-Pile studied philosophy, history and literature at the École Normale Supérieure and was awarded a Fellowship from the Thiers Foundation while completing her doctoral thesis on Michel Foucault.  Before coming to Essex in 1997, she taught in France at the Universities of Paris IV-Sorbonne, Reims and Amiens. She is the author of L’ontologie manquée de Michel Foucault (an updated version came out in 2002 with Stanford University Press as Foucault’s Critical Project: Between the Transcendental and the Historical).  She has published a number of papers, mostly on Foucault, Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, Heidegger and aesthetics. She is currently working on medio-passive agency and its relation to the theological virtues, in particular hope and love.
