Alain Badiou is arguably the most widely read living French philosopher, which means that an increasing number of his texts are coming into English translation. Wittgenstein’s Antiphilosophy (WA) is not a major work of his, like Being and Event or Logics of Worlds, that elaborates his own philosophical project. It is, rather, a brief, compressed treatment of a figure who would be contemptuous towards Badiou’s conception of philosophy, and yet who serves as an important interlocutor for it.
