Rodolphe Gasche

Rodolphe Gasché (born 1938, Luxembourg) holds the Eugenio Donato Chair of Comparative Literature at the University at Buffalo, State University of New York.[1]


Gasché obtained his doctorate from the Freie Universität Berlin, where he has also taught. Before going to Buffalo he taught at Johns Hopkins University.[1]


Early in his career, Gasché translated Derrida's major essays into German. After moving from Paris to Baltimore to take up a post with Johns Hopkins University, Gasché was among a group of young intellectuals who authored pathbreaking articles in the journal "Glyph". The Tain of the Mirror (Cambridge, MA: 1986) located the thought of Jacques Derrida within the philosophical tradition (particularly of phenomenology).
