Paul Trouillas, MD, PhD

Professor of Neurology, Claude Bernard University, Social Semiologist and Philosopher, France

Paul Trouillas was a member of the Office for the Ministry of Research and advisor to the High Commissioner for Planning from 1980-1981. He was then appointed full Professor of Neurology at Claude Bernard University and chief of service in 1984, chairman of the Lyon Neurology College from 1995 to 2001, and Emeritus Professor from 2010 to 2015. He has published 223 scientific publications. He founded a humanitarian league for specialized medical care in Africa in 2004, which he chaired until 2018.

As a social semiologist, Paul published “Le Complexe de Marianne.” The book is considered a classic, for it was praised by Claude Lévi-Strauss, a famous anthropologist, as a structuralist ethnological study of the French people. Other philosophical works Paul Trouillas has published are listed as follows: “French Voluntary Euthanasia” (2012), “Separation and Civilization” (2010), and “Blood on their Ideas.” He also published “A Manifesto for Experimental Philosophy” (2017), which pointed to the historical disasters caused by false ideas, due to the absence of experimental bases.
