About the Author

Alain Badiou, former Maoist and political activist, is a philosopher, mathematician and novelist. He lives in Paris.

Peter Engelmann is a publisher, philosopher and editor of numerous texts by French philosophers in the areas of postmodernism and deconstruction.


‘Badiou's powerful exposition of the unfinished project of revolutionary Marxism makes a compelling case for the universality of communist politics. Elaborated with respect to pressing contemporary problems, his vision for a communist politics for us is inspiring, necessary, and – best of all – possible.’
Jodi Dean, Hobart and William Smith Colleges
“[a] lively and engaging discussion.”
Marx & Philosophy Review of Books
