Thinking the Political: Alain Badiou and the Task of Politics
French Philosopher Alain Badiou offers a radical new view of the task
of philosophy and politics. As a life long activist himself, Badiou
argues that the rehabilitation of Communist hypothesis is the only idea
capable of forcing a different set of social relations. This has
numerous consequence for truth, history, and the subjectivation capable
of realizing an egalitarian society. In this lecture we will explore
Badiou's notion of the Communist hypothesis, its historical points, and
his theory of subjectivity.
