Alain Badiou is undoubtedly the most exciting and influential voice in contemporary French philosophy and one of the most important theorists at work today. His impact on continental philosophy and the wider philosophy community, politics and the arts in the last twenty years has been immense.

Alain Badiou: Live Theory offers a concise and accessible introduction to his work and thought, laying out the central themes of his major works, including his magnum opus, Being and Event, and its long-awaited sequel, Logics of Worlds. Oliver Feltham explores the fundamental questions through which Badiou's philosophy constantly evolves, identifies the key turning points in his ideas, and makes a clear case for the coherence and powerful singularity of his thought when employed in the analysis of political and artistic situations. Feltham examines the thinkers and theorists with whom Badiou has engaged and who have engaged with him, arguing that Badiou's work is compelling precisely because it opens up new genealogies and new polemics in the intellectual landscape. The book includes a brand new interview with Badiou, in which he discusses his current concerns and future plans.

This is the ideal companion to study for students and readers encountering this fascinating thinker for the first time.

About the Author:

Oliver Feltham is Assistant Professor of Comparative Literature at the American University of Paris, France.

Review:

"Feltham, the English translator of Being and Event, reads Badiou's work with an intimate eye and a practiced lucidity...A useful introduction to Badiou's work, this book is packed with fresh ideas sufficient to satisfy the most advanced readers." - Professor Joan Copjec, University at Buffalo, USA

"A brilliant commentary on the whole of Badiou's work, from his very first articles to some decisive developments in Logics of Worlds." - Quentin Meillassoux

"Not only does Feltham's book provide an incisively clear presentation of Badiou's work from his early writings on, it does so through an ongoing and stimulating dialog with the relevant classical and contemporary philosophers, and with an engaging political edge." - Alenka Zupancic

"...a clear and rigorous outline of Badiou's development, guiding us with a firm hand through the early Althusserian epistemology, through his Maoist phase and through all the complexities of the set theory ontology.' - Mladen Dohar, Department of Philosophy, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia

Mention —Book News, November 2008

'Any book about Alain Badiou by Oliver Feltham should be taken seriously ... Alain Badiou: Live Theory is a valuable book for those of us struggling to grasp the thematic trends in Badiou's thought ... given the originality of the work and Feltham's ability to keep the chronological trajectory of Badiou's thought before us, this book (which also contains a brief interview with Badiou at the end) is an important addition to the literature on this increasingly influential philosophical voice'Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

'One of a number of important works published in recent years which explore Badiou's thinking and interrogate its significance within the field of contemporary European philosophy ... There is much here for critical debate amongst experienced readers of Badiou ... a valuable and welcome contribution to the reception of this important contemporary philosopher.' - French Studies

"Feltham, the English translator of Being and Event, reads Badiou's work with an intimate eye and a practiced lucidity...A useful introduction to Badiou's work, this book is packed with fresh ideas sufficient to satisfy the most advanced readers." - Professor Joan Copjec, University at Buffalo, USA

"A brilliant commentary on the whole of Badiou’s work, from his very first articles to some decisive developments in Logics of Worlds." - Quentin Meillassoux

"Not only does Feltham’s book provide an incisively clear presentation of Badiou’s work from his early writings on, it does so through an ongoing and stimulating dialog with the relevant classical and contemporary philosophers, and with an engaging political edge." - Alenka Zupancic
