Edgar Morin (/mɔːˈræn/French: [mɔʁɛ̃]; born Edgar Nahoum; 8 July 1921) is a French philosopher and sociologist of the theory of information who has been recognized for his work on complexity and “complex thought” (pensée complexe),[15] and for his scholarly contributions to such diverse fields as media studies, politics, sociology, visual anthropologyecology, education, and systems biology. As he explains: He holds two bachelors: one in history and geography and one in law.[16] He never did a Ph.D.[17] Though less well known in the anglophone world due to the limited availability of English translations of his over 60 books, Morin is renowned in the French-speaking world, Europe, and Latin America.

During his academic career he was primarily associated with the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS) in Paris.
