    In his Second Manifesto for Philosophy Alain Badiou sets out to oppose the conditions under which philosophy is done today marking a significant change from the conditions under which his First Manifesto was written This book is also a supplement to his larger Logic of Worlds Being and Event 2 just as the First Manifesto supplemented the earlier Being and Event Given Badiou's practice of preparing his Manifestoes for Philosophy alongside the volumes of his Being and Event series it's interesting to wonder whether a Third Manifesto will accompany his soon to be translated Immanence of Truths Being and Event 3 and in what ways the world of philosophy has changed since the writing of the Second ManifestoAs I've suggested this book less than a standalone piece of theory is best read as a supplement to Logic of Worlds and at several stages of Badiou's argument in the Second Manifesto he refers the reader to the appropriate sections of the larger tome His decision to do so however left me feeling like the arguments he laid out were still uncomfortably vague as though this is really an incomplete book The feeling of incompleteness if also fortified by two structural oddities here for one on both the opening and closing covers of the book Badiou has chosen to include diagrams which represent his system from Logic of Worlds this is strange because in the Second Manifesto Badiou barely addresses these diagrams and where he does it is with the clear intention of once again directing readers to the appropriate sections of Logic of Worlds rather than explaining them here Why include them at all if barely cursory attention will be paid to them? Secondly the most theoretical work in Second Manifesto is completed in the introduction and conclusion For the ends to which Badiou in the conclusion deploys the concepts that he spends the book developing like Ideation Subjectivation and Appearance a much shorter text could easily have been written without any impact being made to the argument that Badiou is apparently trying to make here The majority of the book accordingly and in relation to the ostensible purpose of the Second Manifesto feels superfluousThis is by no means a bad book But it does leave one longing for what could have been written a precise and self enclosed work which refuses the temptation to include so much largely tangential content the cost of which is a desultory incomplete and rushed although for all that no less timely book

    Inspiring I wish thinkersphilosophers 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 workFrom the bookWhen all is said and done this Second Manifesto is the result of our confused and detestable present time forcing us to declare that there are eternal truths in politics art science and love And that if we are armed with this conviction if we understand that to participate point by point in the process of creation of subjectivizable bodies is what renders life powerful than survival we will possess what Rimbaud at the end of A Season in Hell desired above all else 'Truth in a soul and a body' Then shall we be stronger than Time

    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 uite 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 morality knowledge and happiness are NOT ONLY categories of philo but concerns of mankind the universal is relevant because the universal freedom the enacting of the Event concerns us


  4. Benjamin Benjamin says:

    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 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 to the most recent period of his work and well worth a read Not for the beginner in philosophy but definitely a good start for those wanting to explore Badiou's work in detail


  5. Bram Van boxtel Bram Van boxtel says:

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