Wahl was an eminent existentialist; For Jean Wahl (1888?1974), Kierkegaard was the first ?subjective thinker?, without whom we could not conceive any prefigurations of philosophy of the existence, which starts up with Christian existentialism. In 1946 he founded the Collège philosophique, influential center for non-conformist intellectuals, alternative to the Sorbonne. Starting in 1950, he headed the Revue de Métaphysique et de Morale. He is known as one of those introducing Hegelian thought in France in the 1930s. He was also a champion in French thought of the Danish proto-existentialist Søren Kierkegaard. He became known as an anti-systematic philosopher, in favour of philosophical innovation and the concrete.
