Famous French philosopher, Anne Dufourmantelle, passed away while attempting to rescue drowning children. Due to strong winds and high waves, the weather wasn’t safe for swimming. Even the beach warning flag changed from orange to red, indicating serious danger. However, when she saw her friend’s children struggling to swim at the Pampelonne Beach, she rushed to save them.
A 53-year-old woman, Anne Dufourmantelle was a prominent French philosopher, author, and professor. She focused her work on the importance of taking risks and was well known for her book Eloge du Risque (In Praise of Risks).
She believed that risk-taking was one of the most beautiful things in life and she tried to live her life without the fear of taking risks.
People all over the world mourned her death. France’s culture minister Francoise Nyssen tweeted, “Emotions following the death of Anne Dufourmantelle. Great philosopher, psychoanalyst, who helped us live, to think about the world of today.”
