Additional Information

<div><i style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">Being and Event</i> is the centrepiece of Alain Badiou's oeuvre; it is the work that grounds his reputation as one of <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">France</st1:country-region></st1:place>'s most original philosophers.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes">  </span>Long-awaited in translation, <i style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">Being and Event</i> makes available to an English-speaking readership Badiou's groundbreaking work on set theory - the cornerstone of his whole philosophy.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes">  </span>This book makes the scope and aim of Badiou's whole philosophical project clear, enabling full comprehension of Badiou's significance for contemporary philosophy. In Being and Event, Badiou anchors this project by recasting the European philosophical tradition from Plato onwards, via a series of analyses of such key figures as Descartes, Spinoza, Leibniz, Hegel, Rousseau, and Lacan. He thus develops the basis for a history of philosophy rivalling those of Heidegger and Deleuze in its depth.This wide-ranging book is organised in a precise and novel manner, reflecting the philosophical rigour of Badiou's thought.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes">  </span>Unlike many contemporary Continental philosophers, Badiou - who is also a novelist and dramatist - writes lucidly and cogently, making his work accessible and engaging.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes">  </span>This English language edition includes a new preface, written especially for this translation. <i style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">Being and Event</i> is essential reading for Badiou's considerable following and anyone interested in contemporary Continental philosophy.</div>>
