The topic couldn’t be more relevant. On Thursday, May 9, the Albertine bookstore will host three intellectuals (one French and two American) for a discussion entitled “Patriotism vs. Nationalism: Ideals for a New Social Contract.”
The participating Frenchman is Bernard-Henri Levy. The Americans are Adam Gopnik, a well-known New Yorker writer, author, and great Francophile, and Andrew MacAfee, a specialist in digital economics and author of several books on the impact of the Internet on the business world. Together, they will examine the moral, social, and political values that must guide democracies at a time when populism is on the rise, the meaning of citizenship is in question, and societies face technological, climate and immigration challenges.
The discussion will be free and given in English. It’s organized by the American branch of LICRA.
