Michel Serres

Michel Serres (born 1 September 1930) is a French philosopher and author.
Serres earned a reputation as a spell-binding lecturer and as the author of remarkably beautiful and enigmatic prose so reliant on the sonorities of French that it is considered practically untranslatable.
In 1990, Serres was elected to the Académie française, in recognition of his position as one of France’s most prominent intellectuals.

You who look at everything through your perpetually open eyes, is your lucidity never bathed in tears?
