Description
Following on from Alain Badiou's acclaimed works "Ethics" and "Metapolitics," "Polemics" is a series of brilliant metapolitical reflections, demolishing established opinion and dominant propaganda, and reorienting our understanding of events from the Kosovo and Iraq wars to the Paris Commune and the Cultural Revolution.
With the critical insight and polemical bravura for which he is renowned, Badiou considers the relationships between language, judgment and propaganda--and shows how propaganda has become the dominant force. Both wittily and profoundly, Badiou presents a series of radical philosophical engagements with politics, and questions what constitutes political truth.
