http://www.egs.edu/ Alain Badiou, French philosopher and author, discusses the duty and work of philosophy and philosophers, from the point of view of time. In this lecture, Alain Badiou describes the work to be done by philosophy and philosophers with respect to the past, present and future. In the present, of philosophy is required both a negative action of resisting its place, and a positive action of knowing its conditions; with respect to the past philosophy must provide a new interpretation of the history of philosophy and its conditions; while, with respect to the future, philosophy has the duty of proposing new conceptions of truth. In this lecture, Alain Badiou also considers two orientations of philosophy, with respect to the work to be done with and in time.
