Discover the radical potential and technical virtuosity of philosopher Alain Badiou's major treatise Being and Event (1988). Co-hosts Andrew Culp and Alexander R. Galloway guide the listener through each section of the book, pairing each episode with a special guest interview. Over nine episodes, they follow Badiou as he explores the nature of being, the function of the state, when and how events arise, and the political potential of subjects in their relation to truth.
