O pensamento tornado dança. Estudos em torno de George Steiner gathers a set of essays from renowned authors of various nationalities on the work of a man who is considered to be one of the greatest thinkers on culture and philosophy of our times.

A writer, essayist, literary critic, philosopher, and an educator, George Steiner was born in Paris in 1929, a son of Austrian parents of Jewish descent. In 1939, facing the Nazi threat in Europe, the Steiner family moved to New York, where George attended the Lycée Français de New York. He then studied at Yale, Chicago, Harvard and Oxford, where he received his doctorate. Later, he was a Professor in the universities of Princeton, Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard, and Genève. In 1944, he would obtain American citizenship, although a great part of his life is linked to Europe.

His work constitutes a “very special crossing of knowledge acquired with personal experience” and it is marked by his “insistence in the role of language and the arts of language in the many modalities of communication and knowledge.”
