Freddie Sayers speaks to Bernard-Henri Lévy.

Few have made the case for liberal interventionism more consistently than Bernard-Henri Lévy. Despite setbacks in Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan, the French public intellectual’s worldview has remained largely unchanged.

He joined Freddie Sayers in our London studio to discuss his new book, The Will to See.
