Alain Badiou

According to Badiou, truth procedures proceed to infinity, such that faith fidelity outstrips knowledge. Badiou’s work is, by his own admission, [17] an attempt to break out of contemporary philosophy’s fixation upon language, which he sees almost as a straitjacket.

This results from the axiom of foundation — or the axiom of regularity — which enacts such a prohibition cf. Nirenberg and Nirenberg write:.

In line with his concept of the event, Badiou maintains, politics is not about politicians, but activism based on the present situation and the evental [ sic ] his translators’ neologism rupture.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Firstly, it secures the inexistence of the ‘one’: Badiou again turns here to mathematics and set theory — Badiou’s language of ontology — to study the possibility of an indiscernible element existing extrinsically to the situation of ontology.

Set theory does not operate in terms of definite individual elements in groupings but only functions insofar as what belongs to a set is of the same relation as that set that is, another set too. The property ‘one’ is always dominated by ‘not one’. In other projects Wikimedia Commons Wikiquote.


The PSU was particularly active in the struggle for the alian of Algeria.

This situation of being and the rupture which characterizes the event are thought in terms of alwin theoryand specifically Zermelo—Fraenkel set theory with the axiom of choiceto which Badiou accords a fundamental role in a manner quite distinct from the majority of either mathematicians or philosophers.

While such knowledge is produced in the process of being faithful to a truth event, it should be noted that, for Akor, knowledge, in the figure of the encyclopedia, always remains fragile, subject to what may yet be produced as faithful subjects of the event produce further knowledge. According to Aude Lancelin who moderated the discussion, “it came to an ideological confrontation of rare violence”.

Polity, The Age of the Poets: Alain Badiou is a founding member along with Natacha Michel and Sylvain Elogi of the militant French political organisation L’Organisation Politiquewhich was active from elofio it disbanded in On the Politics of Resistance: However, secondly, this prohibition prompts him to introduce the event.

Polity Press, The Concept of Model: Badiou has been involved in a number of political organisations, and regularly comments on political events.

However, he continues, the dominations themselves are, whilst being relative concepts, not necessarily intrinsic to language and constructible thought; rather one can axiomatically define a domination — in the terms elgio mathematical ontology — as a set of conditions such that any condition outside the domination is dominated by at least one term inside the domination. Badiou reasons using these conditions that every discernible nameable or elkgio set is dominated by the conditions which don’t possess the property that makes it discernible as a set.

Bellassen Circonstances 1: In Badiou’s own opinion, this combination places him awkwardly relative to his contemporaries, meaning that his work had been only slowly taken up. Please clean it up to conform to a higher standard of quality, and to make it neutral in tone.

And whilst this is acceptable ontologically, it is unacceptable, Badiou holds, philosophically. By enacting fidelity to the event within these four domains one performs a ‘generic procedure’, which in its undecidability is necessarily experimental, and one potentially recasts the situation in which being takes place.

Share your thoughts with other customers. The individual who chances to witness such an event, if he is faithful to what he has glimpsed, can then introduce the truth by naming it into worldly situations.

Columbia University Press, Controversies: Retrieved 20 April Get to Know Us. Truthfor Badiou, is a specifically philosophical category. Johannes Thumfart argues that Badiou’s philosophy can be regarded as a contemporary reinterpretation of Platonism.
