That French Philosopher

Diana George & Nic Veroli sent Carceraglio their previously unpublished interview with Alain Badiou.

Interview with Alain Badiou

Alain Badiou gave this interview when he attended the “Is a History of the Cultural Revolution Possible?” conference at University of Washington, in February, 2006.

*Note: The interview was commissioned by a Seattle newspaper; the first few answers address readers who might not know Badiou’s work. Most of the following questions were prepared by Nicolas Veroli, who could not be present. Diana George conducted the interview.

The “Seattle newspaper” that commissioned the interview and failed to publish it was, of course, The Stranger. Nevertheless, the interview has real substance, though in my estimation the questions tend to be stronger than the answers.
