Description

Badiou is with doubt the most influential philosopher working in Europe today - this book will provide the first detailed introduction to "Being and Event", a hugely important, but challenging book. Alain Badiou's "Being and Event" is the most original and significant work of French philosophy to have appeared in recent decades. It is the magnum opus of a thinker who is widely considered to have reshaped the character and set new terms for the future development of philosophy in France and elsewhere.This book has been written very much with a view to clarifying Badiou's complex and demanding work for non-specialist readers. It offers guidance on: philosophical and intellectual context; key themes; reading the text; reception and influence; and, further reading."Continuum Reader's Guides" are clear, concise and accessible introductions to key texts in literature and philosophy. Each book explores the themes, context, criticism and influence of key works, providing a practical introduction to close reading, guiding students towards a thorough understanding of the text. They provide an essential, up-to-date resource, ideal for undergraduate students.
