Remarks on the Translation

About the Author

Alain Badiou, Professor of Philosophy, l'Ecole normale superieure


"The lesson of the book is: remain faithful to the twentieth century. The Century is not 'the best' book of the last decade, it is simply the book of the last decade! Read it with the proper tremor, aware that you are reading a classic, that a figure like Plato or Hegel walks here among us!"
Slavoj Zizek

"Badiou's sardonically compressed style is never less than pungent."

Steve Poole, The Guardian
