Étienne Balibar, Professor of Philosophy Emeritus at the Sorbonne and Distinguished Professor of the Humanities at the University of California, Irvine, is one of the most influential interdisciplinary thinkers alive today.  A powerful critic of the present, he has written with unique and prophetic eloquence about the links between racism, nationalism, and the plight of non-European immigrants in a newly unified Europe.
