I am Professor of Moral Philosophy at the Sorbonne (Université Panthéon Sorbonne) and an Honorary Fellow of the Institut universitaire de France. I have also taught at the University of Paris-Nanterre, Blaise Pascal University,  and the University of Neuchâtel. 
I am the current President of the Association des Sociétés de Philosophie de Langue Française (ASPLF). I have been a member of the International Institute of Philosophy (IIP) since 2023. [CV here]

I work mainly on moral philosophy and the history of eighteenth-century Anglophone philosophy, with a particular interest in the 'British moralists' and the Scottish philosophers who followed in their footsteps. I am trying to revive the conversation between the sentimentalists and the rationalists. My book on the standard of taste and the status of aesthetic values before and after Hume, La couleur du goût, was published in 2019. Its sequel, Le Miroir de la sympathie. Adam Smith et le sentimentalisme, was published in February 2024.

My current focus is on reactive practices or attitudes such as blame, gratitude, and forgiveness, and on the relationship between evaluative judgments (moral or aesthetic) and reasons. I am also working on contempt and its effects on attitudes and relationships.
