His books include La philosophie du son with Roberto Casati (Philosophy of sound, Chambon, 1994), L’esprit en mouvement. Essai sur la dynamique cognitive (Mind in motion.

Alexandre Billon

Alexandre Billon was born in 1976 in the southern suburbs of Paris. He received a scientific education at the École Polytechnique and then was awarded a PhD in philosophy in 2005 at the CREA, both in Paris. He is currently an Associated Professor at the faculty of Philosophy and Psychology of the University of Lille Nord de France. As a philosopher, his main research areas are consciousness, the self, subjectivity, depersonalization, delusion and happiness. However, he lives a parallel (but not completely disconnected) life as a poet.  His first collection of poems, Lettres d’une île, came out in 2017 at P.i.sage intérieur Editions (finalist of Prix SGDL Révélation, selected for the Prix CoPo and the Prix des découvreurs). He runs a blog in collaboration with his poet friend Félix O’Conor: fomblard.fr.
