The Adventure Of French Philosophy (Hardcover)
|Over forty years of French philosophy through the eyes of its greatest living exponent.|
From the Publisher:
The perfect companion piece to Badiou's Pocket Pantheon, this collection is essential reading for anyone interested in what Badiou calls the "French moment" in contemporary philosophy.
From the often-quoted review of Louis Althusser's canonical works For Marx and Reading Capital to the scathing critiques of the "potato fascism" in Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's Anti-Oedipus and the "grand politics" of Christian Jambet and Guy Lardreau's The Angel; from talks on Michel Foucault and Jean-Luc Nancy to reviews of the work of Jean-François Lyotard and Barbara Cassin, Badiou reveals the exceptionally rich and varied adventure that is French philosophy.
