From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Emmanuel Mounier (1905 Grenoble – 1950 Châtenay-Malabry) was a French philosopher.

Mounier was the guiding spirit in the French Personalist movement, and founder and director of Esprit, the magazine which was the organ of the movement. Mounier, who was the child of peasants, was a brilliant scholar at the Sorbonne. In 1929, when he was only twenty-four, he came under the influence of the French writer, Charles Péguy, to whom he ascribed the inspiration of the personalist movement. Mounier's personalism became a main influence of the non-conformists of the 1930s.

Peter Maurin used to say wherever he went, "There is a man in France called Emmanuel Mounier. He wrote a book called The Personalist Manifesto. You should read that book."

He taught at the Lycée du Parc at Lyon. He taught at the Lycee Francais Jean Monnet at Brussels

Mounier is cited in the bibliography on Pope Pius XII as the originator of the black legend on the role of the sovereign pontiff during the Second World War. [1]
