Alain Badiou on art (March 7, 2006).
Badiou is a French philosopher, professor at European Graduate School, formerly chair of Philosophy at the École Normale Supérieure. Along with Giorgio Agamben and Slavoj Žižek, Badiou is a prominent figure in an anti-postmodern strand of continental philosophy. Badiou seeks to recover the concepts of being, truth and the subject in a way that, he claims, is neither postmodern nor simply a repetition of modernity. His magnum opus, "Being and Event", is considered by some to be the most important work of 20th century ontology after Heidegger's 'Being and Time". Politically, Badiou is committed to the far left, and to the Marxist tradition.
