Michel OnfrayMichel Onfray (; born 1 January 1959) is a French writer and philosopher with a hedonistic, epicurean, and atheist worldview. A highly-prolific author on philosophy, he has written over 100 books. His philosophy is mainly influenced by such thinkers as Nietzsche, Epicurus, the Cynic and Cyrenaic schools, as well as French materialism. He has gained notoriety for writing such works as ''Traité d'athéologie: Physique de la métaphysique'' (translated into English as ''Atheist Manifesto: The Case Against Christianity, Judaism, and Islam''), ''Politique du rebelle: traité de résistance et d'insoumission'', ''Physiologie de Georges Palante, portrait d'un nietzchéen de gauche'', ''La puissance d'exister'' and ''La sculpture de soi'' for which he won the annual Prix Médicis in 1993.
Onfray is often regarded as being left-wing; however, some observers have stated that he harbours right-wing tendencies. He has become appreciated by some far-right circles, notably with his sovereignist magazine ''Front populaire''. Provided by Wikipedia
