Norbert Waszek, of German origin, concluded his formal education at Christ’s College, Cambridge (PhD 1984). Teaching and research appointments led him to Auckland (NZ), Hannover, Bochum (“Hegel- Archives”), and Erlangen in Germany, before settling in France, in 1992. He is now a senior professor (“classe exceptionnelle”) of the history of ideas within the German studies department at the University of Paris VIII. His research focuses on German idealism, on the German, Scottish, and European enlightenment, and on German-Jewish thought. He is the author (or editor) of nineteen books and of 120 articles. Of particular relevance for the relation of economics and philosophy are his The Scottish enlightenment and Hegel’s account of ‘civil society’ (Kluwer, 1988); Die Institutionalisierung der Nationalökonomie an deutschen Universitäten (Scripta Mercaturae, 1988); and L’Écosse des Lumières: Hume, Smith, Ferguson (Presses Universitaires de France, 2003). More recently (2009 and 2011) he has co-edited two French editions of Hegel’s lectures on the philosophy of history.
