The goal of this talk is to give a pedagogical introduction to Bell's theorem and its implication for our view of the physical world, in particular how it establishes the existence of non-local effects or of actions at a distance. We also discuss several misunderstandings of Bell's result and we will explain how the de Broglie-Bohm theory allows us to understand, to some extent, what non-locality is.
