French professor of philosophy at Aix-en-Provence until he retired in 1927. He believed that his philosophy developed independently of faith, but could open out into a readiness to welcome faith, this became known as "the method of immanence." (One can only wait on grace) He influenced many theologians, including John Paul II, by enabling them to explain how revelation satisfied the deepest hunger of the human heart.

Died on 4 June 1949, Aix-en-Provence, France.
