PhD, Université Paul Verlaine de Metz / Université de Lorraine (France)

Frédéric received his Ph.D. at the Université Paul Verlaine de Metz / Université de Lorraine (France) and studied at the Université catholique de Louvain and the Université Libre de Bruxelles (both Belgium). Before coming to DePaul he taught at the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz (Germany), the University of Luxemburg and the Université de Metz. Within his areas of specialization (phenomenology and German idealism), his research and publications focus on the concepts of affectivity, life and existence, especially in Michel Henry’s radical phenomenology and Fichte’s Doctrine of Religion, which he has co-translated into French (Paris: Vrin 2012), as well as in Fichte’s late Doctrine of Science.
He is the author of: ‘Barbarie ou culture’: L’éthique de l’affectivité dans la phénomenologie de Michel Henry (Paris: Kimé 2010), Eine Ethik der Affektivität: Die Lebensphänomenologie Michel Henrys (Freiburg: Alber 2010) and Fichtes ‘Anweisung zum seligen Leben’. Ein Kommentar zur Religionslehre von 1806 (Freiburg: Alber 2014). He is co-editor (with Stephan Grätzel) of a comparative study of Martin Heidegger and Michel Henry published in 2013 by Alber Verlag: Sein, Existenz, Leben: Michel Henry und Martin Heidegger.
