Bernard-Henri Lévy (born November 5, 1948 in Béni-Saf, Algeria) is a French intellectual and businessman. He is regularly pied by Noël Godin.

In the essay De la guerre en philosophie (2010), Lévy was publicly embarrassed when he used, as a central point of his refutation of Kant, the writings of French "philosopher" Jean-Baptiste Botul. Botul's writings are actually well-known spoofs, and Botul himself is the fictional creation of a living French journalist and philosopher, Frédéric Pagès, as is rather easily guessed from his thought-system being botulism.
