About this product
- DescriptionFor Alain Badiou, theatre--unlike cinema--is the place for the staging of a truly emancipatory collective subject. In this sense theatre is, of all the arts, the one strictly homologous to politics: both theatre and politics depend on a limited set of texts or statements, collectively enacted by a group of actors or militants, which put a limit on the excessive power of the state. This explains why the history of theatre has always been inseparable from a history of state repression and censorship. This definitive collection includes t only Badiou's pamphlet Rhapsody for the Theatre but also essays on Jean-Paul Sartre, on the political destiny of contemporary theatre, and on Badiou's own work as a playwright, as author of the Ahmed Tetralogy.
- Author BiographyAlain Badiou teaches philosophy at the Ecole normale superieure and the College international de philosophie in Paris. In addition to several novels, plays and political essays, he has published a number of major philosophical works, including Theory of the Subject; Being and Event; Manifesto for Philosophy; and Gilles Deleuze. His recent books include The Meaning of Sarkozy; Ethics; Metapolitics; Polemics; The Communist Hypothesis; Five Lessons on Wagner; and Wittgenstein's Antiphilosophy. Bruno Bosteels, Professor of Romance Studies at Cornell University, is the author of Badiou and Politics; Marx and Freud in Latin America; and The Actuality of Communism.
