Women and men : a philosophical conversation by Françoise Giroud( Book )

38 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in 10 languages and held by 658 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

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

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 643 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."--Jacket
Le siècle de Sartre : enquête philosophique by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

31 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 420 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
L'idéologie française by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

38 editions published between 1981 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 397 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
Les derniers jours de Charles Baudelaire : roman by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

36 editions published between 1988 and 2000 in 8 languages and held by 378 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]
Le diable en tête : roman by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

40 editions published between 1097 and 1994 in 6 languages and held by 373 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)
Adventures on the freedom road : the French intellectuals in the 20th Century by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 298 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
Les aventures de la liberté : une histoire subjective des intellectuels by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

22 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in French and held by 293 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

The genius of Judaism by Bernard-Henri Lévy( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in French and English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From world-renowned public intellectual Bernard-Henri Levy comes an incisive and provocative look at the heart of Judaism. For more than four decades, Bernard-Henri Levy has been a singular figure on the world stage-one of the great moral voices of our time. Now Europe's foremost philosopher and activist confronts his spiritual roots and the religion that has always inspired and shaped him-but that he has never fully reckoned with. The Genius of Judaism is a breathtaking new vision and understanding of what it means to be a Jew, a vision quite different from the one we're used to. It is rooted in the Talmudic traditions of argument and conflict, rather than biblical commandments, borne out in struggle and study, not in blind observance. At the very heart of the matter is an obligation to the other, to the dispossessed, and to the forgotten, an obligation that, as Levy vividly recounts, he has sought to embody over decades of championing "lost causes," from Bosnia to Africa's forgotten wars, from Libya to the Kurdish Peshmerga's desperate fight against the Islamic State, a battle raging as we speak. Levy offers a fresh, surprising critique of a new and stealthy form of anti-Semitism on the rise as well as a provocative defense of Israel from the left. He reveals the overlooked Jewish roots of Western democratic ideals and confronts the current Islamist threat while intellectually dismantling it. Jews are not a "chosen people," Levy explains, but a "treasure" whose spirit must continue to inform moral thinking and courage today. Levy's most passionate book, and in many ways his most personal, The Genius of Judaism is a great, profound, and hypnotic intellectual reckoning-indeed a call to arms-by one of the keenest and most insightful writers in the world. Praise for Bernard-Henri Levy's Left In Dark Times "Moving and inspiring ... Bernard-Henri Levy, perhaps the most prominent intellectual in France today, [speaks] truth to power."-The Boston Globe "Continually asking himself as well as others to confront the hard questions, [Levy] produces a text that [is] highly absorbing."-The New York Times Book Review "[Levy's] discussion of contemporary anti-Semitism is sophisticated, detailed and convincing."-Los Angeles Times American Vertigo "An entertaining trip, as much in the tradition of Jack Kerouac as Tocqueville."-The New York Times "Perceptive, pugnacious, passionate [and] exquisitely written."-The New York Observer "It's difficult to remember when a writer of any nationality so clearly and thoughtfully delineated both the good and bad in America. [Grade: A]."-Entertainment Weekly From the Hardcover edition
