German philosopher.

He studied philosophy, Germanistics and classics (1939-47, interrupted by World War II) and is considered to be one of the most important German philosophers of recent decades.

He leaves behind an incredibly vast oeuvre covering the most diverse subjects, from an interpretation of Bach's The Passion of St Matthew to the history of different terms, concepts, and metaphors (such as shipwreck, the book, and the cave). His three major books--The Legitimacy of the Modern Age (1966),The Genesis of the Copernican World (1975), and Work on Myth (1979)--are already classics and constitute true landmarks in the contemporary historiography of ideas.

He died on March 28, 1996
