Being and Event by Alain Badiou
Select Mondays 6-8 pm (reading schedule is below)
6th Floor North Study Room
We’ll make our way through Being and Event three weeks at a time.
“Since the book’s first publication in 1988, Alain Badiou’s Being and Event has established itself of one of the most important and controversial works in contemporary philosophy and its author as one of the most influential thinkers of our time. Being and Event is a comprehensive statement of Badiou’s philosophical project and sees him recast the European philosophical tradition from Plato onwards, via a series of analyses of such key figures as Descartes, Spinoza, Leibniz, Hegel, Rousseau, and Lacan. He thus develops the basis for a history of philosophy rivaling those of Heidegger and Deleuze in its depth.”
