French philosopher Jean Grenier was the teacher of another famous French author, Albert Camus. Here are the major essays by Grenier, published in France in 1959. These are lovingly written and combine the personal with the speculative. A memoir of his cat Maoulou becomes an essay on the nature of death; a series of childhood memories becomes the basis for an essay on his attraction to the void.
