World-renowned philosopher Bernard-Henri Lévy interrogates the many meanings and metaphors we have assigned to the pandemic—and what they tell us about ourselves.
With medical mysteries, rising death tolls, and conspiracy theories beamed minute by minute through the vast web universe, the coronavirus pandemic has irrevocably altered societies around the world.
Bernard-Henri Lévy is a philosopher, activist, filmmaker, and the author of over thirty books. He is widely regarded as one of the West's most important public intellectuals. His books include Who Killed Daniel Pearl?, In the Footsteps of Tocqueville, The Spirit of Judaism, among others.
Adam Gopnik is an award-winning writer and essayist. Since 1986 he has served as a staff writer for The New Yorker, contributing nonfiction, fiction, memoir, and criticism. He is the author of the books Paris to the Moon, Through the Children's Gate, and A Thousand Small Sanities: The Moral Adventure of Liberalism, among others.
