François Dosse (French: [d?s]; born 22 September 1950)[1] is a French historian and philosopher who specializes in intellectual history.[2]


After devoting his doctoral thesis (1983) to the Annales School, Dosse turned his research interests to structuralism, the philosopher Paul Ricoeur (his biography, Paul Ricoeur. Les sens d'une vie (published in 1997), has become the standard authority) and the historian Michel de Certeau. François Dosse is one of the founders of the journal EspacesTemps. In 2007, he published Gilles Deleuze et Félix Guattari, biographie croisée (English trans. Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari: Intersecting Lives [2010]), where he advocated the rehabilitation of Guattari in an intellectual history that had made place only for Deleuze.[3] In 2011 he published a biography on the French historian Pierre Nora and in 2014 on the Greek-French philosopher Cornelius Castoriadis.

François Dosse is currently Professor of Contemporary History at the Institut Universitaire de Formation des Maîtres at Créteil.[4]
