Logics of Worlds
Author(s): Alain Badiou

Logics of Worlds is the sequel to Alain Badiou's masterpiece, Being and Event. Tackling the questions that had been left open by Being and Event, and answering many of his critics in the process, Badiou supplements his pioneering treatment of multiple being with a daring and complex theory of the worlds in which truths and subjects make their mark - what he calls a materialist dialectic. Drawing on his most ambitious philosophical predecessors - Leibniz, Kant, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Lacan, Deleuze – Badiou ends this important later work with an impassioned call to 'live for an Idea'.

Review(s):
“Arguably Europe’s most influential living philosopher, Badiou engages here with art, poetry, and history in daring ways. Supplementing arguments made in his magnum opus, he challenges readers to follow him on an arduous journey into a complex “theory of the worlds” and a materialist dialectic foregrounding truths and events, subjects and points … It is a reconstruction, a far-reaching, incisive, compelling way of reinterpreting the world. Badiou’s fervent plea, in the conclusion, to “live for an Idea” should be heard. Summing Up: Essential. Graduate students, researchers, faculty.” – CHOICE
