  • Plato's Republicby Alain Badiou

    Wiley 2013; US$ 39.95

    Plato's Republic is one of the most well-known and widely discussed texts in the history of philosophy, but how might we get to the heart of this work today, 2500 years after it was originally composed? Alain Badiou invents a new genre in order to breathe fresh life into Plato's text and restore its universality. Rather than producing yet another... more...

  • Cinemaby Alain Badiou

    Wiley 2013; US$ 69.95

    For Alain Badiou, films think, and it is the task of the philosopher to transcribe that thinking. What is the subject to which the film gives expressive form? This is the question that lies at the heart of Badiou’s account of cinema. He contends that cinema is an art form that bears witness to the Other and renders human presence visible, thus... more...

  • In Praise of Loveby Alain Badiou; Peter Bush

    New Press, The 2012; US$ 14.95

    In a world rife with consumerism, where online dating promises risk-free romance and love is all too often seen only as a variant of desire and hedonism, Alain Badiou believes that love is under threat. Taking to heart Rimbaud?s famous line ?love needs reinventing,? In Praise of Love is the celebrated French philosopher?s passionate treatise in... more...

  • Rhapsody For The Theatreby Alain Badiou; Bruno Bosteels

    Verso Books 2013; US$ 24.95

    For Alain Badiou, theatre?unlike cinema?is the place for the staging of a truly emancipatory collective subject. In this sense theatre is, of all the arts, the one strictly homologous to politics: both theatre and politics depend on a limited set of texts or statements, collectively enacted by a group of actors or militants, which put a limit on the... more...

  • The Rebirth of Historyby Alain Badiou; Gregory Elliott

    Verso Books 2012; US$ 19.95

    In the uprisings of the Arab world, Alain Badiou discerns echoes of the European revolutions of 1848. In both cases, the object was to overthrow despotic regimes maintained by the great powers?regimes designed to impose the will of financial oligarchies. Both events occurred after what was commonly thought to be the end of a revolutionary epoch: in... more...

  • Philosophy for Militantsby Alain Badiou; Bruno Bosteels

    Verso Books 2012; US$ 14.95

    An urgent and provocative account of the modern ?militant?, a transformative figure at the front line of emancipatory politics. Around the world, recent events have seen the creation of a radical phalanx comprising students, the young, workers and immigrants. It is Badiou?s contention that the politics of such militants should condition the tasks of... more...

  • Ahmed the Philosopherby Alain Badiou; Joseph Litvak

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 23.99

    English-speaking readers might be surprised to learn that Alain Badiou writes fiction and plays along with his philosophical works and that they are just as important to understanding his larger intellectual project. In Ahmed the Philosopher, Badiou?s most entertaining and accessible play, translated into English here for the first time, readers are... more...

  • The Age of the Poetsby Alain Badiou; Bruno Bosteels

    Verso Books 2014; US$ 23.95

    In this collection of essays, Alain Badiou revisits the age-old problem of the relation between literature and philosophy, arguing against both Plato and Heidegger?s famous arguments. Philosophy neither has to ban the poets from the republic nor abdicate its own powers to the sole benefit of poetry or art. Instead, it must declare the end of what Badiou... more...

  • Ethicsby Alain Badiou; Peter Hallward

    Verso Books 2014; US$ 17.95

    Alain Badiou, one of the most powerful voices in contemporary French philosophy, shows how our prevailing ethical principles serve ultimately to reinforce an ideology of the status quo and fail to provide a framework for an effective understanding of the concept of evil. more...

  • In Praise Of Loveby Alain Badiou; Nicolas Truong

    Profile Books 2012; US$ 14.38

    A new century, new threats to love . . . Love without risks is like war without deaths - but, today, love is threatened by an alliance of liberalism and hedonism. Caught between consumerism and casual sexual encounters devoid of passion, love - without the key ingredient of chance - is in danger of withering on the vine. In... more...
