Left in dark times : a stand against the new barbarism by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bernard-Henri Levy, one of the world's leading intellectuals, revisits his political roots, scrutinizes the totalitarianisms of the past as well as those on the horizon, and argues powerfully for a new political and moral vision for our times. Are human rights Western or universal? Does anti-Semitism have a future, and, if so, what will it look like? And how is it that progressives themselves - those who in the past defended individual rights and fought fascism - have now become the breeding ground for new kinds of dangerous attitudes: an unthinking loathing of Israel; an obsessive anti-Americanism; an idea of "tolerance" that, in its justification of Islamic fanaticism, for example, could become the "cemetery of democracies"; and an indifference, masked by relativism, to the greatest human tragedies facing the world today? Illuminating these and other questions, Levy also brings to life his own intellectual autobiography, highlighting the thinkers and politicians he has known and scrutinized and the ideological battles he has fought over thirty years - revealing their bearing on the present." "Above all, Levy offers a powerful new vision for progressives everywhere, one based neither on the failed idealisms of the past nor on their current misguided, bigoted, and dangerously sentimental attachments but on an absolute commitment to combat evil in all its guises. The "new barbarism" Levy compellingly diagnoses is real and must be confronted. At a time of ideological and political transition in America, Left in Dark Times is a polemical, incendiary articulation of the threats we all face - in many cases without our even being aware of it - and a stand against those threats."--BOOK JACKET
War, evil, and the end of history by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

31 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comprend deux parties, la première traite du rapport de l'auteur à la guerre (fascination versus révolte) et la seconde reprend ses reportages sur cinq guerres oubliées : au Burundi, en Angola, au Soudan, au Sri-Lanka et en Colombie, écrits à partir d'observations sur le terrain
Le siècle de Sartre : enquête philosophique by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

44 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in 7 languages and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'auteur passe au crible d'une analyse critique, biographique et complice, tout ce qui fait du sartrisme un phénomène majeur. Sartre est tour à tour présenté sous son visage stendhalien, marxiste, fou de littérature, ennemi de la littérature, philosophe nietzschéen, rebelle ou dévot
Women and men : a philosophical conversation by Françoise Giroud( Book )

17 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in 7 languages and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the course of a single summer in Paris, in the shade of a fig tree, a journalist and a philosopher meet to participate in an age-old pastime: the contemplation of love. The result is Women and Men, a book about the relationship between the sexes, but more than that, a book about the nature of longing and the character of the human heart. In ten provocative discussions - presented here exactly as they occurred - Francoise Giroud and Bernard-Henri Levy wrestle with human history's most powerful preoccupations, questions and yearnings which have animated lovers since the beginning of time, inspiring symphonies, volumes of poetry, masterpieces of art and literature, even wars. How do we love those we love, and what are the bounds of passion? What, finally, is the nature of desire, what do we most hunger for, most need? The mysteries of romantic love yield themselves up to thrilling scrutiny in these dialogues: seduction, eroticism, the power of beauty, the problem of jealousy, the struggle for fidelity, the wish for pure rapture, and the enduring belief in eternal love. Drawing easily and usefully on an astonishing knowledge of intellectual history - using Stendhal, Proust, Freud, Sartre, and many more as touchstones for their ideas and intuitions - Giroud and Levy achieve a conversational depth and insight in these pages that is a joy to witness, a pleasure to over-hear. Their meditations on love and on the mighty and sometimes mystifying appetites of the human heart and body are both tremendously edifying and great fun
Sartre : the philosopher of the twentieth century by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Om den franske filosof Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-1980)

Le diable en tête : roman by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

48 editions published between 1097 and 1994 in 5 languages and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prix Médicis 1984. L'essayiste et philosophe français a voulu que ce roman "soit la continuation pour d'autres moyens de ##L'idéologie française##". Il a trop bien réussi. On a du mal à croire à son héros successivement pro-FLN, althussérien, terroriste palestinien (en 1972), membre des Brigades rouges (en 1979). Le projet était ambitieux: réaliser une fresque politique et intellectuelle qui couvrirait un demi-siècle et épouserait les fluctuations de l'intelligentsia française (de gauche)
Les derniers jours de Charles Baudelaire : roman by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

47 editions published between 1988 and 2000 in 11 languages and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Film de souvenirs" et "vues prises de l'extřieur". Entre roman et autobiographie, une oeuvre dans laquelle l'auteur rassemble les tm̌oignages apocryphes des proches de Baudelaire au seuil de l'agonie (en 1866), lequel se "remm̌ore sa vie par sq̌uences qui ne suivent pas l'ordre chronologique de cette vie mais l'ordre des valeurs personnelles" (Claude Pichois). Un assez brillant "patchwork de biographie, de psychologie, de morale et de rv̊erie", comme le signale J. F. Josselin. [SDM]
L'idéologie française by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

33 editions published between 1981 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pourfendeur du totalitarisme sous tous ses avatars, Bernard-Henri Lévy débusque cette fois les inclinations fascistes de la France. Pour cela, il fait appel à la mémoire des événements et des idéologies qui, depuis un siècle, ont été entachés de cette hideuse purulence. Livre à thèse, le propos déniche des filiations un peu trop réductrices. Un réquisitoire passionné, passionnant. Un livre provoquant
Adventures on the freedom road : the French intellectuals in the 20th Century by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book we shall witness many a sacred cow being led to the slaughter as we consider the impact on the French intelligentsia of the Bolshevik Revolution, the Third Reich, the Spanish Civil War, the Algerian War and other crucial turning points in this century, and the nation's writers fashion a philosophy to match. To follow Bernard-Henri Levy, one of the high priests of the "new philosophers", in his quest is an altogether stimulating exercise
Le testament de Dieu by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

20 editions published between 1979 and 1983 in French and Undetermined and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les aventures de la liberté : une histoire subjective des intellectuels by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

21 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in French and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Entrevues, notes, précisions et remarques, en contrepoint à un film de huit heures, ##Les aventures de la liberté##, dont la narration générale figure en fin de volume, p. 433-486. L'ouvrage constitue une histoire chronologique des idées et erreurs politiques des intellectuels français, depuis l'affaire Dreyfus jusqu'à la mort du philosophe Althusser, à travers le prisme d'une conscience et d'une sensibilité. L'auteur ne prétend à aucune exhaustivité et organise avec souplesse sa matière autour de trois axes: L'avant-guerre, vue de gauche - Les intellectuels face aux fascismes - Les illusions perdues (décrépitude du Parti communiste, guerre d'Algérie, Mai 1968). Un essai impressionniste, sans apport factuel, mais vivant riche et témoignant d'un esprit ##ouvert##, à son aise dans un courant de pensée qui valorise les démocraties, les consensus, la modération, les droits de l'homme, etc

Ennemis publics by Michel Houellebecq( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in French and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sous l'apparence d'un échange de lettres, les deux auteurs commentent d'abondance l'image publique parfois douteuse qui est la leur et les ressorts secrets de leur oeuvre. Un objet médiatique plus que polémique, intéressant en ce qu'il révèle la façon qu'ont ces auteurs de se percevoir. [SDM]

Daniel Pearl, reporter au "Wall Street Journal", fut pris en otage, puis égorgé devant une caméra par un groupe de fanatiques islamiques en février 2002. Bouleversé et hanté par ce supplice, par ces images, B.-H. Lévy a décidé d'élucider ce crime et de mener sa propre enquête. Récit, enquête, contre-enquête, méditation sur le mal, ce livre emprunte à tous les genres

Dans ce livre, écrit à la première personne, l'auteur du "Diable en tête" a choisi, "au milieu du chemin de sa vie, de faire le point, de se pencher sur lui et sur cet autre lui-même, ce double infidèle, que l'on appelle aussi BHL
