About this book
Alain Badiou is one of the most prominent French philosophers writing today. The 'communist hypothesis' was introduced in 2009 and is a key area of discussion in the wake of the financial crisis.
We know that communism is the right hypothesis. All those who abandon this hypothesis immediately resign themselves to the market economy. This title presents a hypothesis that is partly a demand to reconceptualize communism after the twin deaths of the Soviet Union and neoliberalism, and also a demand for universal emancipation.
