He was an instructor of Gilles Deleuze.

He has published many books about Descartes, Kant and Spinoza, as well as a book on Nicolas Malebranche.

He was close to André Breton and wrote Philosophy of Surrealism (1955), which espoused a view of surrealism as a form of humanism that values the vibrant potential of the unconscious mind.
