From tomorrow, we will be posting an image of somebody holding Badiou’s new book The Communist Hypothesis every day for three days. The winners will be the first ones to identify all three people on the day of the last image being posted.
Here’s what you can win:
The Communist Hypothesis: A new program for the Left after the death of neoliberalism.
Pocket Pantheon: Figures of Postwar Philosophy: A journey through twentieth-century philosophy with the titan of French thought.
The Meaning of Sarkozy: A trenchant and witty dissection of the French political scene by the leading radical philosophers – now just published in paperback, this includes the first statement of Badiou’s ‘communist hypothesis’.
Polemics: A series of radical philosophical engagements with politics, first published in France in the ‘Circonstances’ series.
Metapolitics: Badiou critically examines the the concept of democracy and the link between truth and justice.
Ethics: An Essay on the Understanding of Evil: Badiou shows how our prevailing ethical principles serve ultimately to reinforce an ideology of the status quo, and fail to provide a framework for an effective understanding of the concept of evil.
Check back tomorrow for the first image.
