ABSTRACT
This article reports that a group of young writers in France are criticizing Communism. These writers call themselves as "Les Nouveaux Philosophes." Their discovery of anti-Communist has caused an uproar that has spread throughout all the major French newspapers. These writers are not only criticizing the Communists, but the Socialists as well. They say that all Marxist thought is ultimately totalitarian. The political philosophy of the group has evolved consistently over the decade that has followed May 1968. Bernard-Henri Lévy, a 28-year-old Jew , is at the center of the movement. His book "La Barbarie à visage humain" was published in May 1977. He warns against the subtle totalitarianism that socialism brings along with it.
