The perfect companion piece to Badiou'¬"s Pocket Pantheon, this collection is essential reading for anyone interested in what Badiou calls the '¬SFrench moment'¬ in contemporary philosophy. From the often-quoted review of Louis Althusser'¬"s canonical works For Marx and Reading Capital to the scathing critiques of the '¬Spotato fascism'¬ in Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari'¬"s Anti-Oedipus and the '¬Sgrand politics'¬ of Christian Jambet and Guy Lardreau'¬"s The Angel; from talks on Michel Foucault and Jean-Luc Nancy to reviews of the work of Jean-François Lyotard and Barbara Cassin, Badiou reveals the exceptionally rich and varied adventure that is French philosophy.
