BADIOU ON DELEUZE’S POLITICS: an a-parallel evolution

Abstract: in a very interesting article (the text of a talk given in September 2001), entitled “Existe-t-il quelque chose comme une politique deleuzienne?” (“Does something like a Deleuzian politics exist?”), devoted to the subject of Deleuze and politics, Badiou goes out of his way to be just with Deleuze’s ideas and to highlight their points of convergence.

Badiou does not always show the same concern for a charitable and equitable reading, and often he is quite reductive and quite polemical. However, in this text he is trying hard to do Deleuze justice, while still indicating their points of disaccord. This is why I wish to give the text an extended analysis. Full text here.
