Nouveaux philosophes, neo-conservateurs

This fine piece on that moment in French intellectual history, in 1977, that saw the birth of the "nouveaux philosophes" should have pointed out that many of these philosophers (a title undeserved by BHL at least) are now the French equivalent of neo-conservatives: BHL as "liberal interventionist" or Glucksmann as Sarkoziste.
