Born in Calella in 1946, Josep-Maria Terricabras was a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Girona prior to his election to the European Parliament in May 2014, as part of the L’Esquerra pel dret a decidir broad-left electoral coalition, which promotes the independence of Catalonia and social justice.

He is a graduate of the University of Barcelona and the University of Münster, and has been a visiting research fellow at the University of Münster, St John’s College, Cambridge, and the University of California, Berkeley.
