This translation is accompanied by a recent interview that questions Badiou on the discrepancies between this text and his current thought, on the nature of dialectics, negativity, modality and his understanding of the historical, political and geographical distance that his text introduces into the present.

Such early works of the s and s as Theory of ContradictionThe Rational Kernel of the Hegelian Dialecticand Theory of the Subject feature Marxist specifically Maoist revisitations of Hegelian speculative dialectics in which antagonisms, destruction, splitting, and volatility are emphasized and valorized over reconciliations, syntheses, unifications, and stability.

Readers of Badiou’s more recent work will find a crucial developmental step in his work in ontology and find echoes of his current project of a ‘communist hypothesis’.


Tzuchien Tho has recently defended a Ph. As I previously observed with reference to the “Remark on Idealism” in the Science of LogicHegel’s absolute idealism involves a realist ontology of thorough-going relationality.
