Shmuel Trigano, PhD
Professor of Sociology of Religion and Politics, Paris X Nanterre University

Shmuel Trigano is one of the major intellectual figures of French Judaism. He is professor of Sociology of Religion and Politics at Paris X-Nanterre University, visiting professor at Yeshiva University’s Cardozo Law School, founding director of the College des Etudes Juives de l’Alliance Israelite Universelle, editor of the journals Pardes and Controverses, and President of the Observatoire du Monde Juif. 

In 2010, Professor Trigano founded Raison Garder, an autonomous web-based forum for political and intellectual analyses on the Middle East conflict.  Presenting writings by leading experts, the forum effectively challenges distorted and faulty analyses prevalent in the world today.

Professor Trigano holds his PhD from Paris University and his B.A. from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

He is the author of 40 highly acclaimed essays on Judaism and the Jewish world. He has published 18 books in the field of philosophy, political thought and Jewish studies, including Philosophie de la loi. L’origine de la politique dans la Tora (Le Cerf, 1991); La separation d’amour: Une ethique d’alliance (Arlea, 1998); and The Democratic Ideal and the Shoah: The Unthought in Political Modernity (in English by SUNY Press, 2009; in Hebrew by Ben-Gurion University in 2010).  His recent book, Judaism and the Spirit of the World (Editions Grasset, 2011), presents a global theory of Judaism as a living system. Professor Trigano’s forthcoming book Philosophy of the Law is scheduled for release by Shalem Press in 2012.
