Badiou and Hegel: Infinity, Dialectics, Subjectivity deals serious value determinations of 2 of the dominant figures of the Continental culture of philosophy, Alain Badiou and G.W.F. Hegel. Jim Vernon and Antonio Calcagno assemble tested and rising authors in Continental philosophy to debate the connection among the thinkers, making a multifarious number of essays through Hegelians, Badiouans, and people sympathetic to either. The textual content privileges neither philosopher, nor any specific subject shared among them; fairly, this publication lays a wide and sound origin for destiny scholarship on arguably of the best thinkers of infinity, universality, subjectivity, and the iconic price of philosophy within the smooth Western canon. usually late, this quantity will allure Hegel and Badiou students, in addition to these attracted to post-structuralism, political philosophy, cultural reports, ontology, philosophy of arithmetic, and psychoanalysis.

Example text

These indexical or scriptural formalizations both materialize and de-phenomenalize Hegel’s determinist “logic” or “unity of opposites (bestimmung)” (TS 9). A third move follows, wherein Badiou re-divides the divisions, breaking what is usually understood in Hegel as “contradiction” into three further components: difference, correlation, and position. This, in turn, is reformulated in the terms of the “structural” and “historical” dialectics, “logic of places and logic of forces” (TS 53). The goal of this engagement with Hegel is not to have done with Hegel but to discover and retrieve “Hegel’s materialism,” where it “lay” in Hegel such that it can help reverse the sorry state of the current situation in terms of what it shows itself to think and with regard also to what is and can be done and thus to establish a consistency hitherto unremarked, which Badiou calls subject.

For Hegel, as we have noted, it is precisely negation itself that conditions the becoming of the ruptures and the transitions between being and its appearing, working itself out according to the monumental dialectical procedure. Take the mind-boggling presentation of “Force and the Understanding” in the Phenomenology, in which Hegel analyses how the being of forces open up appearance in their very vanishing, which then itself splits appearance into itself and the “complete void” of its supersensible opposite, which then must itself be thought as appearance qua appearance insofar as it is the sensuous posited in its truth .

Supported by the Principle of Contradiction and the Law of Excluded Middle). Negation is an originary determination for Hegel, precisely because his account of it enables a bond to be maintained between being and appearing at every point—what else is “phenomenology” in its most profound aspect? But, as we have seen, being is treated by Badiou mathematically: if he now turns to appearing as such, it is through a mathematized logic, which, if its generality and mobility can permit certain exceptions to classical principles in the forms of intuitionism and paraconsistency, still cannot permit, first, a re-binding of being and appearing under a single logic or, second, a temporal dynamism given to their concepts.
