French philosopher, dramatist, drama critic, playwright and musician, usually regarded as the first French Existential philosopher.

In addition to his numerous philosophical publications, he was the author of some thirty dramatic works.

Marcel’s contribution to modern thought consisted of the exploration and illumination of whole ranges of human experience—trust, fidelity, promise, witness, hope, and despair—which have been dismissed by predominant schools of modern philosophy as not amenable to philosophical consideration.

He died 8 October 1973, Paris.
