The works of French philosopher Alain Badiou range from novels, poems, 'romanoperas' and popular political treatises to elaborate philosophical arguments engaging with mathematical theory. Throughout all of his writings, there is a staunch commitment to emancipatory politics and radical change through fidelity to what he calls the 'event' and its 'truth'. Badiou's famous, or infamous, philosophy of emancipation is faithful to the communist truth, the universal idea of a collective life, but he also claims that 'philosophy is always a biography of the philosopher'. Introducing Alain Badiou is an elegantly written and crisply illustrated guide to an essential contemporary thinker.
