Alain Badiou Quotes


A prominent French philosopher.
(1937 - )

A Truth is the subjective development of that which is at once both new and universal. New: that which is unforeseen by the order of creation. Universal: that which can interest, rightly, every human individual, according to his pure humanity.
 

Evil is the interruption of a truth by the pressure of particular or individual interests.
