Alain Badiou is a writer, philosopher and an Emeritus Professor at the Ecole normale superieure, Paris.
"Scarcely any other moral philosopher of our day is as politically clear-sighted and courageously polemical, so prepared to put notions of truth and university back on the agenda." -Terry Eagleton, Lancaster University, UK "Alain Badiou's plea in this stimulating little book contains the 'serious coquetry' one expects from a philosopher committed to the corruption of youth: young people, whether young in body or mind, reorganize your youth, and in so doing reanimate thinking in radically new directions!" -Jason Barker, Kyung Hee University
