    Louis Marin, French post-structuralist thinker, was born in 1931 in France. He attended the University of Paris, Sorbonne and graduated with a Licence in Philosophy in 1952. His degree was followed in 1953 with an Agrégé in Philosophy and with a Docteur d'Etat in 1973.
    Marin taught at the University of Nanterre, Paris from 1967-1970, the University of California, San Diego from 1970-1974, Johns Hopkins University from 1974-1977, and finally at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris from 1977-1992.
