Gorazd Kocijančić is a philosopher, poet, translator and publicist. He is one of the most prominent Christian philosophers in Europe. He is a polyhistor and polyglot (he speaks 12 languages). His bibliography numbers almost 400 references. He has translated complete works of Plato, Evagrius Ponticus, Dionysius The Areopagite, pre-Socratian fragmants, works of early Christian, Byzantine and Latin church authors, ant texts of Solovyov, Rilke, Nietzsche, Levinas, Rahner and others. His publications were translated into major European Languages.
In his three most recent books – The Breaking: Seven Radical Essays (2009), Erotics, Politics Etc: Three Experiments on the Soul (2011) and On Something More: Four Essays on Plentitude (2016) – he has set out his philosophical system. Kocijančič uses postmodernist language, but his basic philosophical position nevertheless comes out of tradition of Christian thought.
