Pascal is a French writer. After studies at the University Paris I and Paris VII, and then at the École Pratique des Hautes Études, he became Maître de Conférence at the Institut d’Études Politiques de Paris, and collaborator at the Nouvel Observateur.
A prolific writer, Pascal Bruckner began writing in the vein of the so-called “nouveaux philosophes.” He published “Parias, ou la tentation de l’Inde” (“Parias, or the temptation of India”), “Lunes de Fiel” (which was adapted to film by Roman Polanski), and “Les voleurs de beauté” (The beauty stealers) (Prix Renaudot in 1997). His most famous essay is ‘Le Sanglot de l’Homme blanc’ (‘The Cry of the White Man’), an attack against narcissistic and destructive policies toward Third World countries.
