László Tengelyi was a Hungarian philosopher who was educated and initially taught at Eötvös-Loránd-University in Budapest before becoming chair of philosophy at Bergische Universität Wuppertal, Germany, in 2001. Tengelyi published extensively in Hungarian, German, French, and English. From a focus on Critical philosophy and Phenomenology in his dissertation and early writings, his interests broadened to themes in ancient and medieval philosophy. In 2011, Tengelyi intervened in political debate in his home country, calling attention to state-led media campaigns against fellow philosophers such as Ágnes Heller. Shortly after completing his major World and Infinity: On the problem of a Phenomenological Metaphysics (Welt und Unendlichkeit. Zum Problem phänomenologischer Metaphysik, Tengelyi 2014), Tengelyi died unexpectedly at the age of 60.
