Portugal National Mourning Day – December 2

December 2, 2020


INL associates to the National Mourning Day decreed by the Government of Portugal, one of our member-states, for the death of Eduardo Lourenço, one of the most distinguished Portuguese contemporary thinkers.

Essayist, professor, and philosopher, and a member of the Portuguese Council of State, Eduardo Lourenço has been decorated on multiple occasions in Portugal and abroad for his clarity of thought and for his contribution to understanding the complexity of the world we live in.

Unanimously regarded as one of the most brilliant minds of Portugal he considered that his books were his sons.

Eduardo Lourenço died in Lisbon at the age of 97 years old.
