Lausanne, Switzerland (Le Temps, Fre) – René Berger, Swiss philosopher known for his passionate approach to art, who early on embraced technology in the field of arts, has died, age 94. He taught for many years at the University of Lausanne, in his hometown, and he was a key figure in the development of Vaud’s Museum of Fine Arts. Journalist Bruno Giussani wrote a tribute to Berger’s “technocultural” life in 2006.

Remarkably, unless you knew him, it seems, only 11 days before he died 28 January, Berger posted his last blog post on Rencontres a Chevilly, a shared blog, with a few remarks on “Switchboard In The Brain Helps Us Learn And Remember At The Same Time,” an article in Science Daily.
