Alex T rated it really liked it Jun 26, Collected here are not introductory essays about eleven philosophers from post-war France, but eleven eulogies of one sort or another, each coming from a different publication or event and each with an entirely different audience from the one preceding it.

Of all those addressed in this book, he’s the figure I know the most about, so I was both pleasantly introduced to the book, and disappointed that his presence within it was so brief; the Sartre chapter was also interesting, offering a pretty unique perspective on the man; the Hippolite chapter which follows was one of the more enjoyable for sure.

Knjiga zamisljena kao katekizam. In some cases, though, it has only whet my appetite for the work of the thinkers themselves. At times the book shows signs of Badiou’s own retreat into the position of public intellectual – there’s a sense that he wants to help create a French canon – but it also includes forceful statements of political commitment which I think remain genuine.
