Resource description

How, in the philosophy of Alain Badiou, is the relation between thought and language, the true and the legal, between philosophy itself and the impersonal transcendental field made possible through the occurrence of unexpected events? With and against Badiou, I argue that such a relation is one of subtraction and so similar to that which from time immemorial has permitted the somewhat enigmatic dominion of night and day in nature and culture alike. What then might be at stake in Badiou’s nocturnal jurisprudence, in his subtractive discourse of the truth of the legal?
