Alexandre Kojève (; French: [al?ks?~d? ko??v]; 28 April 1902 – 4 June 1968) was a Russian-born French philosopher and statesman whose philosophical seminars had an immense influence on 20th-century French philosophy, particularly via his integration of Hegelian concepts into twentieth-century continental philosophy.
As a statesman in the French government, he was instrumental in the formation of the European Union.
Kojève was a close friend of, and was in lifelong philosophical dialogue with, Leo Strauss.
