Philosophy Forum 23/09/2015: We need to talk about Alain…

Dear All

that pesky Badiou just won’t stay down, cropping up again as he did in last weeks paper.  Let’s face it, whether he is a pompous ‘I’m as important as Hegel’ or not, his imprint on current philosophical discourse is sufficiently large that we’ll all feel better for a closer look.

With that in mind I think we should have a look at this paper by Jason Barker. I would also encourage people to have a hunt around generally for Badiou related things to see if we can piece together a bit more what he’s wittering on about rather than just saying ‘mathematics is ontology’ over and over.

With best wishes
