  • Plato's Republicby Alain Badiou

    Wiley 2013; US$ 35.95

    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$ 22.46

    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...

  • Blackby Alain Badiou

    Wiley 2016; US$ 11.66

    Who hasn't had the frightening experience of stumbling around in the pitch dark? Alain Badiou experienced that primitive terror when he, with his young friends, made up a game called "The Stroke of Midnight." The furtive discovery of the dark continent of sex in banned magazines, the beauty of black ink on paper, but also the mysteries of space and... more...

  • Our Wound is Not So Recentby Alain Badiou

    Wiley 2016; US$ 8.99

    On 13 November 2015, Paris suffered the second wave of brutal terrorist attacks in a year, leaving 130 dead and many more seriously injured. How are we to make sense of these violent acts and what do they tell us about the forces shaping our world today? In this short book the influential philosopher Alain Badiou argues that while these violent events... more...

  • The Centuryby Alain Badiou

    Wiley 2018; US$ 24.26

    Everywhere, the twentieth century has been judged and condemned: the century of totalitarian terror, of utopian and criminal ideologies, of empty illusions, of genocides, of false avant-gardes, of democratic realism everywhere replaced by abstraction. It is not Badiou's wish to plead for an accused that is perfectly capable of defending itself without... more...

  • Number and Numbersby Alain Badiou

    Wiley 2018; US$ 24.26

    The political regime of global capitalism reduces the world to an endless network of numbers within numbers, but how many of us really understand what numbers are? Without such an understanding, how can we challenge the regime of number? In Number and Numbers Alain Badiou offers an philosophically penetrating account with a powerful political subtext... more...

  • The Rebirth of Historyby Alain Badiou

    Verso 2012; US$ 19.95

    Testing the winds of history blowing from the Arab revolts. 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... more...

  • Rhapsody for the Theatreby Alain Badiou

    Verso 2013; US$ 24.95

    The renowned philosopher reflects on his passion for theatre For Alain Badiou, theatre—unlike cinema—creates a space in which philosophy can be lived. It is, of all the arts, the most closely related to politics: both depend on a limited number of texts or statements, which are collectively enacted by a group of actors or militants who test the limits... more...

  • Polemicsby Alain Badiou

    Verso 2014; US$ 19.95

    Overturning the dominant narrative of events, from the Paris Commune to the Iraq wars. Polemics is a series of brilliant metapolitical reflections, demolishing established opinion and dominant propaganda, and reorienting our understanding of events from the Kosovo and Iraq wars to the Paris Commune and the Cultural Revolution. At once witty and... more...

  • Ethicsby Alain Badiou

    Verso 2014; US$ 17.95

    One of the most powerful voices in contemporary French philosophy explodes the facile assumptions behind the recent ethical turn. Ethical questions dominate current political and academic agendas. While government think-tanks ponder the dilemmas of bio-ethics, medical ethics and professional ethics, respect for human rights and reverence for the... more...
