His philosophy seeks to expose and make sense of the potential of radical innovation revolution, invention, transfiguration in every situation. It simply is, and it is everything.

Deleuze — University of Minnesota Press

Though I think in this reading there is still too much Badiou, that the torsion of a barely recognizable Deleuze is due mostly to Badiou’s appropriation of Deleuzean concepts but attempting to guide and understand Deleuze in terms of a Badiouian formalism.

If you class every difference without deleze real status then the order of the world of being is a simulacra. Or one can mention the explanation of Bwdiou notion of fidelity, which in Roffe’s brief account is uncritically reduced to an “unconscious construction” and to “the constitution of a counter-state” p. In fact it seems to deliberately obfuscate rather than clarify.

The Rights of Simulacra: Badiou would seal that event as an infinite extension that forms a transcendental. He continues to teach a popular seminar at the Coll Alain Badiou, Ph.

One can’t help but to remain skeptical as to whether or not Badiou is forcing the conclusions he draws upon Deleuzian thought in absentia of the latterbut nonetheless one can’t help furthermore to be drawn in by Badiou’s special engagement and correspondence with Deleuze, which lasted until the latter’s last days in his badio with terminal illness, and enmity that was perhaps the most fruitful for him, in his own words, “a conflictual friendship that, in a certain sense, had never taken place,” because of philosophical and perhaps political differences.

The empty set shows that the entire set is a simulacrum. This is where the concept of the fold comes in. I see the answer now though, for Deleuze through elan vital talks about a second order of conception.

Deleuze: The Clamor of Being by Alain Badiou

I always enjoy reading Badiou, and this book was no exception. Home Current Catalogs Bbeing. Badiou’s incomparably attentive readings of key Deleuzian concepts radically revise reigning interpretations, offering new insights to even the veteran Deleuze reader and serving as an entree to the controversial notion of cllamor “restoration” of Plato advocated by Badiou — in his own right one of the most original figures in postwar French philosophy.

Philosophy can therefore think towards a new world, if not a new physics. Badiou strives in this study to show just how close Deleuze is in fact to Aristotelian philosophy where the equivocity of being is concerned, and furthermore, just how close Deleuze’s concept of the univocity of being puts him in alliance with Plato especially, a thinker Badiou clearly esteems very highly for having delineated the four domains or sites in which truths operate, of which philosophy is appointed to be the thd guardian: So Deleuze, unlike Heidegger resembles Plato in the Parmenidies by affirming that being is not split between nothingness and being, but that there is only one path to being.

The results of this quest are the senses of meaning that collectively form the simulacra known as beings from the non-sense of Being. Said another way this difference is in terms of boundaries. There is, perhaps, a degree of truth to this. Sign in to use this feature. For Badiou, chance is not the contingency of the One, but is the contingency of all possible events, while for Deleuze what emerges is a virtual doctrine of contingency — chance of the One itself is radical contingency of being.


Here is how it works: Jeff rated it liked it Feb 23, I used to be confused as to why Badiou saw Deleuze as being a philosopher who primarily invokes the univocity of the One, when that seemed to somewhat antithetical to Deleuze’s multiplicities.

Badiou takes formalism to be standing on its own, that all is reducable to formalism. This is very strange as he has based most of his critique of Deleuze on the notion that he is an unintentional Platonist. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. This is also why Badiou’s book Logics of Worlds: Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Jason Barker – – Historical Materialism 12 1: And so it is with eternal returns; that each return is a return of pure difference.

Both philosophers are trying to rethink and reaffirm the univocity of ground.

Dawn rated it really liked it Feb 20, The virtual grounds a double determination- that of a problem Being and a multiplicity of problems beings. By understanding Deleuzian formalism as being a kind of monad, a form that carries with it seeds of content, Badiou would read Og as necessarily needing a One in order to meld a common domain.
