Badiou, pedagogy and the arts

Educational Philosophy and Theory 42 (2):159-176 (2010)
The essay distils from Badiou's writing a pedagogy based on his theories of knowledge and truth, as brought to bear on poetry and the arts. By following Badiou's implicit ontology of learning, which presupposes a dynamic and passionate engagement with a concrete situation, the essay argues that Badiou's view of modernity, in particular, contributes greatly to the educational topic, and offers an alternative teaching paradigm to the outmoded schools of criticism of the 20 th century. It also argues that the concept of universalism in education, as against identitarian particularism, is further evinced from a discussion of Badiou's study of St. Paul.
