Trained at the Loránd Eötvös University in Budapest and at the EHESS in Paris, Ádám Takács seeks to understand the relationship between history and ideologies in European—and Hungarian— 20th century (as in “Totalitarianism as an Atmosphere. Morality and Mentality in Hungary under the Kádár regime”, Divinatio, 2013). A specialist of Foucault and Husserl, to whom he dedicated a book (Le fondement selon Husserl. Une idée de la phénoménalité, 2014), Ádám Takács is also a translator of French philosophy (Foucault, Ricoeur, Deleuze). He currently teaches at the Loránd Eötvös University in Budapest.
