I have been a “Feyerabendo-Deleuzian” pluralist for many years, but I am beginning to get interested in Badiou again after long having rejected him, and I am finding his recent ideas quite attractive. I wish to do some work on his IMMANENCE OF TRUTH subjective turn, and am looking for a format that will allow me to be both useful and honest. After frequenting as far as possible both the ideas and the milieus of Bernard Stiegler and of Bruno Latour I have come to the conclusion that there is something missing philosophically in their work that I am beginning to find again in Badiou. So, despite my being critical of some aspects of his thought and style, my recent contributions are meant to be explorations of the positive value of his recent work.
Similarly, I have an ambivalent relation to Bruno Latour’s AIME project, that I have been criticising a lot lately to rid it of its dogmatic residues. I am not “against” AIME, and I never have been. It is a very important contribution to the ongoing evolution of pluralist thought. I came to France in 1980 after 10 years of being criticised or ostracised for being a pluralist, first in my Catholic high school, then in the University by the Analytics, the Althusserians, the Lacanians, and the Derrideans. I attended the lectures of Deleuze, Lyotard, Foucault and Serres. So my coming to France, and staying here, was for love of pluralism. This is why I immediately became enthusiastic, and critical, about AIME. I am a fellow-traveler. I wish AIME well (but different).
