Description

Starting from the controversial assertion that ontology is mathematics, it sets out the theory of the emergence of truths from the singular relationship between a subject and an event. Also included is a substantial excerpt from Badiou's forthcoming work on the logics of appearance and the concept of world, presented here in advance of its French publication. Ranging from startling re-readings of canonical figures (Spinoza, Kant and Hegel) to decisive engagements with poetry, psychoanalysis and radical politics, "Theoretical Writings" is an introduction to one of the great thinkers of time.
