The predominance of post-modern proposal within the latter 1/2 the twentieth century has
brought philosophy to a concern of self belief in its skill to enquire and comprehend
our present fact. The complacent relativism that has emerged from post-modern
discourse leaves us unprepared to stand both the dominance of a dis-associative free-market or the emergence of regressive fundamentalist totalitarianism. Alain Badiou projects
philosophy with recuperating the method of logical research into the first forces
which form our lives, and he does so through equipping philosophy with either a method and an
end: philosophy is a mathematical ontology within the unending pursuit of fact.

mathematical framework of set thought as trained by means of Paul Cohen, doing so within the
distinctly Platonic spirit of an entice fact because the antidote to the sophistry of post-modern inspiration.
Such issues with the intersection of authority and place are exceptionally
modern ones, and for Badiou we stay stuck at the horns of the trendy quandary of
the undisputed grasp and the limitless position. the method of overcoming any such fake
dichotomy, Badiou indicates, comprises a go back to the scene of its founding within the
century’s mind's eye, the instant of its poetic enunciation. via an research of
the severe and inventive paintings of Ezra Pound and T.S. Eliot among the wars, I current
their extraordinary know-how of this challenge and their makes an attempt to beat it, concentrating on
their respective moments of good fortune and failure as understood via a critique in keeping with
Badiou’s ethics and aesthetics.
