http://www.egs.edu/ Alain Badiou, French philosopher and author, discusses the dialectic nature of philosophy, as something beyond positivism and nihilism. In this lecture, Alain Badiou articulates the opposition between Analytic Philosophy and Dialectic Philosophy, and this opposition's correspondence to the relationship between existence and being qua being. Badiou argues that there is a distance between 'to be' and 'to exist' and that this distance is of a dialectical nature, and that philosophy is the dialectical movement from being to existence, a movement which is not between but beyond both nihilism and positivism. During the lecture Badiou uses and discusses the concepts positivism, nihilism, negation, dialectics, ontology, knowledge, subjective experience, angst, as well as Descartes and Socrates, and the question of the what the beginning of philosophy is.
