A journey through twentieth-century philosophy with the titan of French thought

Pocket Pantheon is an invitation to engage with the greats of postwar Western thought, such as Lacan, Sartre and Foucault, in the company of one of today’s leading political and philosophical minds. Alain Badiou draws on his encounters with this pantheon—his teachers, opponents and allies—to offer unique insights into both the authors and their work. These studies form an accessible, authoritative distillation of continental theory and a capsule history of a period in Western thought.

Reviews

“Badiou’s sardonically compressed style is never less than pungent.”

“Badiou and his ‘pantheon’ remind us that a relevant as well as rigorous philosophy remains attainable, not to mention urgently needed.”
