http://www.egs.edu/ Alain Badiou, French philosopher and author, lecturing on the conditions necessary for the inception of philosophy. In this lecture Alain Badiou discusses the five conditions for the inception of philosophy: democracy, common logic, equality, impurity and presence. Badiou argues how the intertwining of these conditions, present in Ancient Greece, formed a situation, which could give birth to philosophy. Badiou focuses on the concepts of groundlessness, truth, objectification, rationality, universality, the generic, the subject, and the conflicts between philosophy and academia, and fictions of art and fictions of knowledge, as well as notions of event and the presence of the philosopher.
