Grégoire Chamayou holds an agrégation in philosophy and is a researcher at the Max-Planck institute in Berlin. He has translated Clausewitz’s On War, an anthology of Kant’s texts on body and mind, Ernst Kapp’s Principes d’une philosophie de la technique and Marx’s The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte into French. After a first essay on the topic of medical experimentation on human beings, he published Les Chasses à l’homme (manhunting), which rereads the history of philosophical politics through the central hypothesis that any domination link presupposes a predation link. He also manages "Zones", a publisher that focuses on counter-culture, activism and new forms of protest.

Latest book: Les Chasses à l’homme : histoire et philosophie du pouvoir cynégétique (La Fabrique, 2010)
