Believe And Live is a collection of brief reflections by a great statesman who makes every effort to evoke both his deep love for France and fundamental values of our democracy, on which to build a new world. In six chapters – Politics, Institutions, Europe, The Economy, Society and Education – the author analyzes the tension between the crises we are undergoing and the project to be invented: What is democracy? How to avoid the professionalism of political communication? How to restore meaning, morality and courage? An impassioned educator who clearly voices his leftwing leanings, Edgard Pisani takes note of inevitable change and calls for a much needed evolution of the institutions, the social habits that preserve the unity of the nation, the role of France in the world, situating the dignity of every human at the very core of his preoccupations. What emerges from these clear maxims is a humanistic and generous vision, an impression of wisdom, serenity and optimism, encouraging all readers eager to play a score in shaping the future.
