Introducing Alain Badiou: A Graphic Guide (Paperback) by Kelly Michael J. Piero
The works of French philosopher Alain Badiou range from novels poems 'romanoperas' and popular political treatises to elaborate philosophical arguments engaging with mathematical theory. Throughout all of his writings there is a staunch commitment to emancipatory politics and radical change through fidelity to what he calls the â€œeventâ€ and its â€œtruthâ€. Badiouâ€™s famous or infamous philosophy of emancipation is faithful to the communist truth the universal idea of a collective life but he also claims that â€œphilosophy is always a biography of the philosopherâ€. Introducing Alain Badiou is an elegantly written and crisply illustrated guide to an essential contemporary thinker.
