After working at LIRE Magazine from 2002 to 2005, RE participated in the launch of Philosophie Magazine, where he has been a regular columnist since the first issue, with his texts compiled into three collections, L’Endroit du Décor, Le Philosophe de Service et autres textes and Matière Première (Decor Inside Out, The Service Philosopher and other texts, Primary Matter)  all published by Gallimard. But his first book, halfway between essay and novel, entitled Un Jeu d’Enfant – La Philosophie (Child’s Play – Philosophy), was published by Fayard in 2007.

Upon obtaining the Agrégation teaching diploma, RE participated, alongside Michel Onfray, in the launch of the  Université Populaire de Caen (Popular University of Caen), then contributed to the creation of the Société Normande de Philosophie, (Normandy Society of Philosophy), before organizing and presenting, from 2004, first at the national library Bibliothèque Nationale François Mitterrand and then at the Théâtre de l’Odeon, a dozen annual meetings with philosophers, writers and art historians driven by the oxymoron dear to the theatre luminary and poet Antoine Vitez:  “elitism for all”. 

 At the same time, from 2003 to 2006, RE built an oral library on national radio station France Culture as part of the program Commentaires(Commentaries), available on CD, the purpose of which was to provide as wide an audience as possible with the classics of thought. From 2007 to 2011, while writing and hosting the program Philosophie on ARTE (since 2008), RE has produced and presented Les Nouveaux Chemins de la Connaissance (The New Paths of Knowledge), which still offers a daily hour of philosophy, history of art and of literature. Finally, after having participated in France Culture’s morning programme Le Monde Selon Raphaël Enthoven  (The World According to Raphaël Enthoven), RE launched a new show in September 2012 called Le Gai Savoir (The Joyful Wisdom), broadcast every Sunday from 4pm to 5pm.

Finally, a series of short daily programs, Imaginez (Imagine), on Franco-German television station ARTE. He was awarded the Prix Femina for his essay in Le Dictionnaire Amoureux de Marcel Proust (The Amorous Dictionary of Marcel Proust), co-written with Jean-Paul Enthoven and published by Plon / Éditions Grasset. Following the dictionary, he published in February 2015 Le Snobisme – Questions de Caractère (Snobbery – Questions of Character), co-written with Adele Van Reeth.

From August 2015 to August 2018 he joined radio station Europe 1 and created La Morale de l’Info (Moral of the News Story), a daily three-minute slot in the middle of the Thomas Sotto morning programme, and Qui-Vive (On the Lookout) every Saturday, from 3pm to 4pm.

In September 2015 he published Anagrammes Pour Lire Dans les Pensées (Anagrams for Reading Minds) with Chen Jiang-Hong and Jacques Perry-Salkow at Actes Suds, then Vermeer – Le Jour et l’Heure (Vermeer – the Day and the Hour) with Jacques Darriulat at Fayard.  Then Little Brother, published by Gallimard in March 2016.

In January 2018 he published Morales Provisoires (Provisional Morals)at Éditions de L’Observatoire; and the following year, his Nouvelles Morales Provisoires (New Provisional Morals), which brought together all his columns ...
