A reassessment of Badiou's work which demonstrates its critical importance for contemporary philosophy. This collection of thirteen essays engages directly with the work of Alain Badiou, focusing specifically on the philosophical content of his work and the various connections he established with both his contemporaries and his philosophical heritage. You’ll find in-depth critical readings of his oeuvre through the lens of a number of important philosophical thinkers and themes, ranging from Cantor and category/topos theory, Lacan and Lautman, through to Sartre and the subject. This is an important collection for anyone interested in the work of Badiou and contemporary Continental philosophy.
