Robin over at Dread, Walking has posted a further revised version of the translation of Badiou’s Numbers that he is doing. Well worth checking out and Robin should be applauded for his efforts!!! I still haven’t figured out Badiou’s use of set theory yet, and I used to be ok at maths! I have a nagging suspicion that it involves something like the fallacy required for the old teleological proof of God. (And I am not joking, just confused, orificer!) Although Daniel Smith’s essay “Badiou and Deleuze on the Ontology of Mathematics” in the Hallward edited collection Think Again clears up a number of things in my understanding of both Deleuze and Badiou. ‘Axiomatics’ vs ‘problematics.’ I will have to write a post on this later.
Oh, I added PHDBLOGIT to my blog roll. The blogger in question is now a colleague of mine at the CCR! Fantastic. Another PhD blogger! w00t!!!!!!!111
Lastly, I am up late. Just figured out how to start my due-at-the-end-of-the-month non-places article as I was going to sleep. How often does that happen!?!?! All the bloody time! Damn crepuscular thought/sleep events…
