schema:reviewBody""Alain Badiou is without doubt the most important and influential thinker working in European philosophy today. Conditions is the first major collection of essays written after Being and Event, his extraordinary magnum opus." "Badiou starts with philosophy itself and a clear critique of the theme of its so-called 'end'. He then goes on to propose a new definition of philosophy, one that is tested with respect to both its origin, in Plato, and its contemporary state. The essays that follow are all ordered around the four great conditions of philosophy: philosophy and poetry, philosophy and mathematics, philosophy and politics, and philosophy and love." "Conditions provides an illuminating reworking of many of the major concepts in Being and Event. In so doing, Badiou not only develops the complexity of the concepts central to Being and Event but also adds new ones to his already formidable arsenal." "The essays contained within Conditions show the immense scope and potential of Badiou's extraordinary system."--Jacket."
