Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

In 1993 the French philosopher Alain Badiou published Ethics: An Essay on the Understanding of Evil, a scathing examination and reformulation of the discourse of evil in contemporary society. Upon its English translation in 2001 – along with his magnus opus, Being and Event, which was translated in 2007 – Badiou took his place alongside Foucault, Derrida, and Levinas as a major French influence on the Anglo-American philosophical scene. Yet Badiou's critiques of postmodern philosophy, hermeneutics, and ethics based on the ‘other’ seriously challenge conventional Anglo-American categories of public understanding and scholarly analysis. Thinking Education Through Alain Badiou represents the first collection to take up Badiou's challenge to contemporary philosophical orthodoxy by exploring the educational implications of his work. Experts in various educational fields filter Badiou's work through aesthetic, political, ethical, personal, and collective lenses, connecting his radical work to the human potential for 'affirmative inventions.' This book offers thought-provoking insights into the connections between schooling in the West and an anti-postmodern strand of contemporary philosophical thought.
