Alain Badiou – Wikipedia

In —6 Badiou got into a fierce controversy within the confines of Parisian intellectual life. Verso, Cinematransl. Art is immanent in the sense that its truth is given in its immediacy in a given work of art, and singular in that its truth is found in art and art alone—hence reviving the ancient anor concept of “aesthesis”.

Badiou’s theory of truth, exposited throughout his work, accomplishes this strange mixture by uncoupling invariance from self-evidence such that invariance does not imply self-evidenceas well as by uncoupling constructedness from relativity such that constructedness does not lead to relativism.

Serpent’s Tail, Philosophy for Militantstransl. An Alaain on the Understanding of Eviltransl. Badiou has written about the ajor of beingtruthevent and the subject in a way that, he claims, is neither postmodern nor simply a repetition of modernity.

Archived from the original on 8 September The idea, here, is that a truth’s invariance makes it flogio indiscernible: These sets are, in line with constructible ontology, relative to one’s being-in-the-world and one’s being in language where sets and concepts, such as the concept ‘humanity’, get their names. Several critics have questioned Badiou’s use of mathematics.


Nirenberg and Nirenberg write:. Badiou argues for resurrecting the practice of communism.

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 of mathematical ontology — as a set of conditions such that any condition outside the domination is dominated by at least one term inside the domination.

The property ‘one’ is always dominated by ‘not one’. Badiou consistently maintains throughout his work but most systematically in Manifesto for Philosophy that philosophy must avoid the temptation to suture itself ‘sew itself’, that is, to hand over its entire intellectual effort to any of baeiou independent truth procedures.

Alain Badiou

What individuates a set, therefore, is not an existential positive proposition, but other multiples whose properties i. He vigorously rejects the tag of ‘ decisionist ‘ the idea that once something is decided it ‘becomes true’but rather argues that the recasting of a truth comes prior to its veracity or verifiability. While such knowledge is produced in the process of being faithful to a truth event, it should be noted that, for Badiou, 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.


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. Please clean it up to conform to a higher standard of quality, and to make it neutral in tone.

This is why Badiou accords set theory the axioms of which he refers to as the “ideas of the multiple” such slogio, and refers to mathematics as the very place of ontology: Social and political philosophy.
