The European Graduate School mourns the loss of Professor Werner Hamacher.  

(1948-2017)

Professor Hamacher was a brilliant and devoted teacher.  Every student who worked with him recognised immediately that his command of continental philosophy and contemporary literary thought was unmatched.  Those who taught beside him also knew his grace as a dear friend and profound supporter of the causes of the EGS.  His devotion to the program will continue to inspire as we strive to meet the ambitions he helped define for us in stunning gestures of teaching and writing.
