Alain Badiou Key Concepts by A. J. Bartlett, Justin Clemens

Alain Badiou is one of the world's most influential living philosophers. Few contemporary thinkers display his breadth of argument and reference, or his ability to intervene in debates critical to both analytic and continental philosophy. Alain Badiou: Key Concepts presents an overview of and introduction to the full range of Badiou's thinking. Essays focus on the foundations of Badiou's thought, his key concepts - truth, being, ontology, the subject, and conditions - and on his engagement with a range of thinkers central to his philosophy, including Plato, Descartes, Spinoza, Heidegger and Deleuze.


This book includes exposition, analysis and appraisal of Badiou's work by some of the best of a new generation committed to writing about Badiou's thought in an accessible and engaging form. They show how Badiou has given a unique turn to French philosophy on a wide range of philosophical topics. - Russell Grigg, Deakin University, Australia

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
