Product Details

Praise

“This is a fiery little book.”—Choice

“His reasoning is powerful and surprising, making some of the best writing in current European philosophy, and his credentials are impeccable.”—Amazon.com

“Badiou is at his strongest in pointing to the inconsistencies of a facile multiculturalism, the pluralism of the food court and the shopping mall, which wilts in the face of any genuine expression of cultural hostility to liberal values.”—Radical Philosophy

“His lively, stimulating and sometimes completely batty book is an attempt to make us think differently about what matters to us … it is hard not to feel some sympathy for Badiou’s intuition that ‘morality’, ‘evil’ and indeed much of our standard moral vocabulary often serve as almost deliberate disguises for mediocre policy-making, social complacency and a general lack of adventurousness about life”—Times Literary Supplement
