http://www.egs.edu/ Alain Badiou, French philosopher and author, lecturing on the dialectical relationship between eternity and time. Badiou argues that eternity can be created in time, that is, something can be both created ad eternal. In this lecture Badiou opposed this thesis to others concerning the relationship between time and eternity, including that of mysticism (eternity is the same thing as time), religion (eternity and time are two different levels of existence), G.W.F. Hegel (the totality of time is the realization of the Absolute Idea), and Plato (time is an image of eternity). Alain Badiou ties the relationship between time and eternity to the goal and essence of philosophy, arguing that the question of its relation to time is the great question of philosophy. During the lecture, Badiou uses and discusses positive and negative determination, the concepts of place, freedom, the present, event, truth, and time. Public lecture for the students and faculty of the European Graduate School EGS Media and Communication department program Saas-Fee Switzerland Europe 2010 Alain Badiou.
