Clément Vidal studied philosophy and logic at the Université Paris I-Panthéon-Sorbonne, where he wrote a thesis on the notion of infinity in 2003. He is beginning his third year of a PhD in the philosophy of cosmology, at the Free University of Brussels (VUB).

Research goal: In the last few decades, science and cosmology provided us great insights about our place in the universe. However, the scientific worldview strive to be value-free; we thus need to extend it to give a meaning to our lives. A broader philosophical worldview answering our existential questions is such an extension. This worldview will provide people a meaning of life, in harmony with past and future cosmic evolution.
