Author(s): Alain Badiou
Alain Badiou takes on the standard bearer of the linguistic turn in modern philosophy and anatomizes the antiphilosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein. In the course of his interrogation of Wittgenstein s thinking, Badiou refines his own definitions of the universal truths that govern his work. Bruno Bosteels s introduction argues that a continuing dialogue with Wittgenstein is inescapable for contemporary philosophy.
An heir to Jean-Paul Sartre and Louis Althusser.
