Dr. Frank Darwiche

Frank Darwiche is a Lebanese-French professor of philosophy in Dijon, France. He was formerly an associate professor of philosophy at the University of Balamand, and professor of philosophy at the ENSA, Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Art, in Dijon, France. He is also a researcher published in various peer-reviewed journals of philosophy. His interests include ontology, German philosophy (Heidegger, Kant, Hegel, Gadamer), phenomenology, and philosophy of art. Darwiche writes on most of his days, for different reasons and in a different manner. Commenting on the process of writing, Darwiche believes that for the researcher in him, writing is like “constructing an edifice-qua-essay or article or book.” For the translator in him, “it is taking something on and giving it a new voice, in a new world, a new language.” For the poet in him, writing is curated “to allow for the unsaid to come phenomenologically into the open of language.”
His numerous publications include:
