Alain Badiou's work has been described as "the event of contemporary philosophy" (Slavoj Zizek) and Badiou himself as "the most important, powerful and unsettling philosophical voice to have emerged from the Continent in recent years" (Simon Critchley). Think Again, the first publication of its kind, goes a long way towards justifying these assessments.

Badious Philosophie des Ereignisses steht im Mittelpunkt seiner einflussreichen Theorie revolutionärer Politik. Dabei hat er viel Zustimmung für die rigorose und systematische Entfaltung seiner Theorie erfahren, aber aufgrund seines theoretischen und persönlichen Radikalismus auch viel Ablehnung. Gerade seine Kritik an der diskursethischen Grundlegung der modernen Demokratie wie auch seine Verteidigung von Militanz marginalisieren ihn. Untergräbt Badious Werk nicht den Wert der politischen Repräsentation durch den Staat? Was bleibt von diesem, wenn politisch-universelle "Ereignisse" per definitionem Wahrheit durch die Bedingung ihrer strukturellen Illegalität verkörpern, während der Staat nur zu Repräsentation des Legalen fähig erscheint? Der Band "Badiou und der Staat" versammelt Aufsätze von international herausragenden Experten auf dem Gebiet der zeitgenössischen politischen Philosophie. Sie widmen sich diesen Fragen bzw. Anfragen, die Badious einzigartige Philosophie provoziert. Mit Beiträgen von Alain Badiou, Lorenzo Chiesa, Oliver Feltham, Dominik Finkelde, Gernot Kamecke, Paul Livingston, Rado Riha, Frank Ruda, Arno Schubbach, Alberto Toscano, Yannis Stavrakakis und Jan Völker.

Alain Badiou is one of the leading philosophers in the world today. His ground-breaking philosophy is based on a creative reading of set theory, offering a new understanding of what it means to be human by promoting an 'intelligence of change'. Badiou's philosophical system makes our capacity for revolution and novelty central to who we are, and develops an ethical position that aims to make us less anxious about this very capacity. This book presents a comprehensive and engaging account of Badiou's philosophy, including an in-depth discussion of The Theory of the Subject, Being and Event and Logics of Worlds. In a clear and careful analysis, Ed Pluth considers exactly how Badiou's theoretical 'anti-humanism' is linked up to what is, for all intents and purposes, a practical humanism. Central to this is an account of Badiou’s theory of the subject, and his attempt to develop an 'ethic of truths'. The role of set theory, Marxism, and Lacanian psychoanalysis in Badiou's philosophy is also given close attention. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of philosophy, as well as to all those keen to develop a critical understanding of one of the most controversial and important thinkers of the twentieth century.

The oeuvre of Alain Badiou has gained international success and recognition, but most of the secondary literature focuses on internal problems of Badiou's philosophy, rather than its position within a broader philosophical genealogy. This book unites philosophers from Germany, Slovenia, the UK, Australia and France, to trace the relation between elements of Badiou's philosophy and the German philosophical tradition, namely the three significant movements of German Idealism, Phenomenology, Marxism and the Frankfurt School. This is a discussion that has not yet been established, although the parallels and decisive differences between poststructuralist French philosophy and German philosophy are apparent. Through these paradigms – Badiou's reception of German Idealism, Marxism, Adorno and the Critical Theory, and Heideggerian phenomenology – the authors shed light onto Badiou's inheritance of and engagement with these specific traditions, but also highlight the links between these philosophies to open up new questions for contemporary continental thought. With an original chapter from Alain Badiou himself, looking back at his influences and antagonisms within the German tradition, this book is essential for readers interested in the exploration of Badiou's legacy. It illustrates the continuation of poststructuralist philosophy, Critical Theory and the Frankfurt School, assessing the place of classic continental philosophy to tackle how we might benefit from these intellectual exchanges today.

This concise, accessible volume captures the relationship between politics and philosophy as it is conceived Alain Badiou's work. Harking back to his mentor Louis Althusser, Badiou explains how politics conditions philosophy, while suggesting that philosophy itself may be needed to clarify the truths produced within the political condition. Badiou also offers an intriguing take on what he calls the four major “ensembles” of French and, more broadly, Western society today, in which new emancipatory forms of politics are emerging: students, the young, workers and immigrants. Badiou concludes with a return to the notion of communism, here defined as an answer to the obscure knot that ties politics, philosophy and democracy.

Two controversial thinkers discuss a timeless but nonetheless urgent question: should philosophy interfere in the world? Nothing less than philosophy is at stake because, according to Badiou, philosophy is nothing but interference and commitment and will not be restrained by academic discipline. Philosophy is strange and new, and yet speaks in the name of all - as Badiou shows with his theory of universality. Similarly, Zizek believes that the philosopher must intervene, contrary to all expectations, in the key issues of the time. He can offer no direction, but this only shows that the question has been posed incorrectly: it is valid to change the terms of the debate and settle on philosophy as abnormality and excess. At once an invitation to philosophy and an introduction to the thinking of two of the most topical and controversial philosophers writing today, this concise volume will be of great interest to students and general readers alike.

This concise and accessible book is the perfect introduction toBadiou’s thought. Responding to Tarby’squestions, Badiou takes us on a journey that interrogates andexplores the four conditions of philosophy: politics, love, art andscience. In all these domains, events occur that bring to lightpossibilities that were invisible or even unthinkable; they proposesomething to us. Everything then depends on how thepossibility opened up by the event is grasped, elaborated andembedded in the world – this is what Badiou calls a‘truth procedure’. The event creates apossibility but there then has to be an effort – a groupeffort in the case of politics, an individual effort in the case oflove or art – for this possibility to become real andinscribed in the world. As he explains his thinking on politics, love, art and science,Badiou takes stock of his major works, reflects on their centralthemes and arguments and looks forward to the questions he plans toaddress in his future writings. The book concludes with ashort introduction to Badiou’s philosophy by Fabien Tarby. For anyone wishing to understand the work of one of the most widelyread and influential philosophers writing today, this small bookwill be an indispensable guide.
