Introducing Alain Badiou
French philosopher Alain Badiou has now been publishing for 50 years. His works range from novels, poems, “romanopéras” and popular political treatises to elaborate philosophical arguments engaging with mathematical theory.
Although the specific topics and characters differ between the texts, one can see throughout all of his writings, lectures and interviews an endless commitment to emancipatory politics and radical change through a fidelity to what he terms the event and its truth.
This formal philosophy of emancipation is faithful to the communist truth,
the universal idea of collective life.
