André Comte-Sponville (born 12 March 1952) is a French philosopher born in Paris, France.
André Comte-Sponville studied in the École Normale Supérieure and earned a PhD form Panthéon-Sorbonne University, and is aggregated in philosophy. He is a proponent of atheism and materialism, but in a particular form, because of his spiritualistic aim.
The most important aspect of his work is an overcoming of traditional materialistic atheism in a perspective of post-materialism, because he demonstrates a spiritualization of atheism. This is especially present in his essay L'esprit de l'athéisme, published in 2006."Le bonheur - visions occidentale et chinoise", a three CD spoken word audio conference and discussion with Francois Julien, 2007.
