IN PRAISE OF LOVE ALAIN BADIOU PDF

January 17, — an impassioned and immensely insightful defense of both love as a human faculty and love as a worthwhile philosophical pursuit. It takes us into key areas of the experience of what is difference and, essentially, leads to the idea that you can experience the world from the perspective of difference. But unlike Tolstoy and Gandhi, who advocated for cultivating an expansive platonic love of one another, and unlike Martin Luther King, Jr. Love… is a quest for truth… truth in relation to something quite precise: what kind of world does one see when one experiences it from the point of view of two and not one? What is the world like when it is experienced, developed and lived from the point of view of difference and not identity?

From one of the greatest living French philosophers, a spirited and moving defense of twenty-first-century love. In a world rife with consumerism, where online dating promises risk-free romance and love is all too often seen only as a variant of desire and hedonism, Alain Badiou believes that love is under threat. For Badiou, love is an existential project, a constantly unfolding quest for truth.

Invoking a vibrant cast of thinkers from Kierkegaard, Plato, and de Beauvoir to Proust, Lacan, and Beckett, Badiou creates a new narrative of love in the face of twenty-first-century modernity. Moving, zealous, and wise, In Praise of Love urges us not to fear love but to see it as an adventure, a magnificent quest that compels us to explore otherness and difference, ultimately leading us away from an obsession with the self. Nicolas Truong is a writer, journalist, and regular contributor to the French daily Le Monde.

In Praise Of Love

And that probably means, as the poet Rimbaud said, that it also needs re-inventing. It cannot be a defensive action simply to maintain the status quo. The world is full of new developments and love must also be something that innovates. Risk and adventure must be re-invented against safety and comfort. In his very accessible book, In Praise of Love recently released in English translation , the eminent French philosopher and political radical Alain Badiou begins with an attempt to seduce us.
