Bernard-Henri Lévy

Philosopher, Filmmaker and Activist

Dispatches from a World of Misery and Hope, in collaboration with How to Academy

Bernard-Henri will share his investigative trips taken before and during the COVID pandemic, from the massacred Christian villages in Nigeria to a dangerously fragile Afghanistan on the eve of the Taliban talks, from an anti-Semitic ambush in Libya to the overrun refugee camp on the island of Lesbos.

Most important of all, he will argue that a truly humanist philosophy must necessarily lead to action in defence of the most vulnerable, issuing a stirring rebuke to indifference and an exhortation to level our gaze at those most hidden from us.

Bernard-Henri Lévy

Bernard-Henri is a philosopher, filmmaker, activist, and the author of over thirty books, including The Virus in the Age of Madness. He is widely regarded as one of the West’s most important public intellectuals.
