From the advertisement for the event
Despite the cynicism and melancholy of a decadent left, Jacques Ranciere and Alain Badiou persist in imagining the possibility of an entirely different state of affairs. Central to their thought is the conviction that emancipation does not derive from objective conditions – that politics no longer has an historical homeland. It is rather the becoming of a radically new subjectivity, heterogeneous to the determinism of places and functions.

Jacques Rancière (born Algiers, 1940) is a French philosopher and Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris (St. Denis). He first came to prominence in 1968 when he co-authored Reading Capital with the Marxist philosopher Louis Althusser.

Alain Badiou (Rabat, 1937) teaches philosophy at the Ecole Normale Superieure and the College International de Philosophie in Paris. In addition to several novels, plays and political essays he has published a number of major philosophical works. After a long political militancy in the Maoist far left, in 1985 Badiou founded L'Organisation Politique, a post-party organization concerned with direct popular intervention.


The forty minutes of discussion after the presentation will be added here as a comment tomorrow

This is a recording of the question and answer session that followed the presentations, its a little over 30 minutes in length. The growing level of background noise is due to people arriving for the People's Kitchen in Seomra, unfortunately it did required me to edit out large chunks of at least one contribution from the floor that was mostly inaudible.

There are more details on what I say on the origins of the Zapatistas and there connections with the existing left at http://anarchism.pageabode.com/andrewnflood/zapatistas-...ction
