Badiou and Hegel: Infinity, Dialectics, Subjectivity offers critical appraisals of two of the dominant figures of the Continental tradition of philosophy, Alain Badiou and G.W.F. Hegel. Jim Vernon and Antonio Calcagno bring together established and emerging authors in Continental philosophy to discuss the relationship between the thinkers, creating a multifarious collection of essays by Hegelians, Badiouans, and those sympathetic to both. The text privileges neither thinker, nor any particular topic shared between them; rather, this book lays a broad and sound foundation for future scholarship on arguably two of the greatest thinkers of infinity, universality, subjectivity, and the enduring value of philosophy in the modern Western canon. Assuredly overdue, this volume will attract Hegel and Badiou scholars, as well as those interested in post-structuralism, political philosophy, cultural studies, ontology, philosophy of mathematics, and psychoanalysis.

Review:

The essays in Jim Vernon and Antonio Calcagno's timely collection cover the multiple facets of Badiou's highly ambivalent rapport with Hegel's philosophy as it unfolds from the 1970s through today. . . .For those interested in Badiou and Badiou's relations with Hegel, Badiou and Hegel certainly is worth reading. It contains useful summaries and analyses of the place(s) of Hegel in the Badiouian oeuvre. (Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)

This book contains the first exhaustive analysis of Badiou’s brilliant and surprising texts on Hegel. The essays include an excellent treatment of infinity in Badiou and Hegel that discusses precise mathematical ontology in a way that non-mathematicians can follow and participate in: this is the sort of Badiou scholarship we need. They also include theses on materiality and dialectic, subject and event, society and decision, art and politics, love and tragedy, and, of course, truth procedures. For its close readings of Badiou, and current approaches to Hegel, this collection is indispensible. What is especially good is that it forces readers to participate in controversial decisions, and raises the level at which these controversies will have to be pursued in the future. (Jay Lampert, University of Guelph, Duquesne University)

This collection is a sustained and timely examination of the relationship between one of the foremost philosophers of the twenty-first century and one of the major thinkers of the nineteenth. Of equal use and importance to Badiou and Hegel scholars alike, these essays should provide the bedrock of any serious discussion of many key philosophical terms and approaches over the coming years. (Nina Power, University of Roehampton)
