A musician and philosopher by training, I have worked at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique since 1998. I am currently director of the Institut des textes et manuscrits modernes (CNRS / École normale supérieure), and also responsible for the "Nietzsche" and "Humanités numériques" teams.

Field of research

Between 2002 and 2005, having received the Sofja Kovalevskaja prize from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the German Ministry of Research, I led a multidisciplinary research group at the University of Munich (LMU) around my project HyperNietzsche. From 2007 to 2011, I was a visiting fellow at the Oxford Internet Institute and a member of the Maison Française d'Oxford and the Oxford e-Research Centre.

As a specialist in Nietzsche, I am working on the interpretation of his philosophy and on the edition of his works, combining the achievements of the Italian and German traditions with the approach of French genetic criticism. I have also been one of the initiators of the scholarly edition on the Web.


My list of publications includes 103 entries: 17 books (monographs, text editions, collective works), 2 digital editions of Nietzsche's complete works (critical edition and facsimile edition), 78 articles and 6 reviews, published in 9 languages.
