Bernard-Henri Lévy: "Don Quixote is a magnificent character"


INTERVIEW - On the occasion of the release of his book Sur la route des hommes sans nom, the philosopher confides in his literary models. He criticizes the obsession with health which has turned the eyes of our democracies to the Covid to the detriment of real wars.

Idealist, BHL?

He who has been portrayed as a media intellectual and whose interventionism has been vilified responds to criticism.

He defends a committed geopolitics and pleads for a West that proudly asserts its values.

In his new book, Sur la route des hommes sans nom (Grasset), the philosopher has collected reports on the causes he has defended: the Christians of Nigeria, the Kurds of Rojava, the migrants from Lesbos.

At Le Figaro, he confides in his passion for action and his literary models, from Malraux to Byron.

Engaged with SOS-Racisme in the 1980s, he considers the new anti-racism "monstrous" which "declares war on whites".

Finally, he criticizes the obsession with health which has fixed the eyes of our democracies on the only Covid to the detriment of the real wars which bloody the world.
