The sinologist receives the Leenaards Cultural Award 2013 “as a mark of admiration for his weighed, strong and concise work, which transmits his exceptional knowledge of China and its philosophers, thereby questioning the deep nature of the human being and of the unknown characters. The other winners of Leenaards Cultural Award this year are the filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard and the organist Lionel Rogg. Jean François Billeter is a Swiss sinologist and emeritus professor of the University of Geneva, where he created the sinology department in 1987.
