    One thought on “Second Manifesto for Philosophy”

    1. Inspiring. I wish more thinkers/philosophers would deign to do this: Badiou has (for the second time) followed a massive, technical philosophical work with a short, poetic, sharp manifesto summarizing what he was up to in the massive work. It is readable but still definitely challenging. It treats you to some of the challenging conclusions, while also letting you decide whether you want to dive in to the challenge of the larger work.From the book:"When all is said and done this Second Manifesto [...]

    2. read here badiou's insistence on thought but not a corresponding neglect of practice as many people usually do especially when they divide theory and practice too much. he enlivens the idea of the 'universal' -- again quite refreshing given all the death, deaths and other deaths pronounced by POMO and all. pinaka-yummy? he anoints the proletariat as a key unit in that universal. this, sort of relates to what marcuse yata said something in philo which makes it hiwalay to the people: "reason, mind [...]

    3. Badiou has a great knack of turning the mind-bogglingly complex ideas behind his masterworks into a compact, concise and readable short pieces. This book condenses the ideas in "Logics of Worlds" into something more digestale. I always think that these reductions and collections of essays (Theoretical Writings and Infinite Thought in particular) manage to show how he isn't full of the empty bluster that many critics of continental thought aim at him directly or indirectly. A great introduction t [...]

    4. Badiou attempts to mix materialism with platonism, and does so to a satisfactory degree. I find his conclusion to be quite vague (how can we recognize these eternal truths?) and I am not entirely convinced. A light read.
