About this book
A translation of one of the single most important works of recent French philosophy, Badiou's magnus opus, and a must-have for his growing following and anyone interested in contemporary continental thought. 'A significant book, one which one cannot fail to find staggering' Jean Francois Lyotard
A work on set theory - the cornerstone of the author's whole philosophy. This book includes a series of analyses of such key figures as Descartes, Spinoza, Leibniz, Hegel, Rousseau, and Lacan. It develops the basis for a history of philosophy rivalling those of Heidegger and Deleuze in its depth.
