1 published article
Full Professor in Practical Philosophy at the University of Gustave Eiffel in Paris Region. Author of 12 essays and articles in moral and political philosophy and in applied ethics (medical and biomedical ethics, animal ethics and environmental ethics). Most of her essays are translated.
She develops a phenomenology of corporeality which has two pillars. The first one is focused on vulnerability, the other one on our inhabiting the Earth and our coexistence with other beings. This philosophy of corporeality highliths the relational dimension of the self and aims at making ecology and the animal cause be political. Although Corine Pelluchon overcomes the dualism between nature and culture, reason and emotion and the anthropocentrist foundations of ethics that underlie modern and contemporay liberalism, she adocates the ideal of emancipation of the Enlightenment and makes ecology and the animal cause the opportunity to redefine humanism.
Her whole work was awarded the Günther Prize for critical thinking in 2020, in Germany. Her most recent books are Understanding Levinas, Seuil, 2020 and To Repair the World. Humans, Animals, Nature, Rivages, 2020.
