82. Bernard-Henri Lévy (Philosopher) The Mirror of Our Better Selves  

Since 2008, Big Think has been sharing big ideas from creative and curious minds. The Think Again podcast takes us out of our comfort zone, surprising our guests and Jason Gots, your host, with unexpected conversation starters from Big Think’s interview archives.

The Washington Post has this to say about today's guest: "There is no American equivalent of Bernard-Henri Lévy. Known as “BHL,” he is among the last of a quintessentially French breed, the 20th century intellectuel engagé. As a “nouveau philosophe” disenchanted with Marxism, communism and the excesses of 1968, when civil unrest roiled France, Levy has enjoyed a long and theatrical career since the 1970s, embracing journalism, philosophy, film and an outspoken advocacy for human rights."

BHL's films include the documentaries Bosna! And A Day in the Death of Sarajevo. Lévy is co-founder of the antiracist group SOS Racisme and has served on diplomatic missions for the French government. His newest book The Genius of Judaism explores what he sees as the crucial metaphysical role of Jewish thought and the Jewish people in the life of nations.

Today's episode addresses torture, the question of evil, and the tipping point at which democracy becomes something else. 

Surprise conversation starter interview clips in this episode: Paul Bloom on Torture, and Ian Bremmer on America as a Superpower.

About Think Again - A Big Think Podcast: You've got 10 minutes with Einstein. What do you talk about? Black holes? Time travel? Why not gambling? The Art of War? Contemporary parenting? Some of the best conversations happen when we're pushed outside of our comfort zones. Each week on Think Again, we surprise smart people you may have heard of with short clips from Big Think's interview archives on every imaginable subject. These conversations could, and do, go anywhere.



The Count of St Germain (Part 2)  

If you wished you could do all the things the Count of Saint Germain could do, meet all the people he had met, and learn all the secrets of life he seemed to possess, and on top of it all, have several lifetimes to employ your skills, what then? The question is, what would you do with these gifts? Would you be content to merely be the life of the party, or would you try and make a difference in the affairs of nations and enlighten humanity, even if it cost you your freedom or your once immortal life? Depending on your answer, the bigger question might be, does it take the right person to seek the mysteries, or do the mysteries seek the right person? Tonight's Quote: “I thought, with all due respect to Madame la Comtesse, that the devil had long since made a mantle out of the skin of this personage.” — Madame d’Adhemar’s maid, as she explained that the Count of Saint Germain was waiting to see her. From d’Adhemar’s book, “Souvenirs de la Marie Antoinette” published in 1836.

Donald Trump Says He'll Put America First  

Making his inauguration speech, the 45th President of the United States vowed to put America first. Donald Trump's address was relatively short, big on patriotism yet somewhat bleak, painting a picture of a nation in the grip of crime, drugs, unemployment and dereliction. He pledged to bring about huge change. We ask two Republican party insiders how likely that is and how he intends to achieve it. Plus a former Prime Minister of Finland helps us assess the geopolitical implications for Europe, and the Executive Director of America's largest grassroots environmental organisation discusses the new administration's energy policy. In other news, the Gambia's defeated leader Yahya Jammeh says he has decided to relinquish power, after hours of talks with regional leaders and the threat by a regional military force to make him leave. We ask an expert from the Chatham House Africa programme if the country and the region can quickly put this damaging episode behind it. Molly Wood from Marketplace radio tells us about a new film exploring the contentious beginnings of the McDonalds chain of restaurants. Jon Bithrey is joined by two guests on opposite sides of the Pacific - business columnist and commentator Diane Brady in New York and Clive Hunton of ABC News Radio in Australia's capital Canberra.

Nicole Kidman talks about her new film 'Lion' based on the true story of a five year old boy who gets lost on the streets of Calcutta and ends up being adopted by a couple in Australia. The poet Theresa Lola performs her poem 'Notes on Loving Your Grandfather with Dementia'.
