DANIEL BENSAi D (1946 - 2010) was a founder member of the Ligue Communiste and a leader for many years of the Fourth International. His many books include Walter Benjamin, sentinelle messianique; Jeanne de guerre lasse; Eloge de la politique profane; and Marx for Our Times.
"France's leading Marxist public intellectual" Tariq Ali "Daniel's death is like a wound, not a sadness. A loss which leaves us heavier. However, this weight is the opposite of a burden; it is a message composed, not with words, but with decisions and acts and injuries." John Berger "Daniel Bensai d was my 'distant companion' ... With his disappearance, the intellectual, activist, political, and what we might call, even though the adjective is today obscure in meaning, 'revolutionary' world has changed." Alain Badiou
