Robin over at Irrational Numbers has superb posts and photographs on a recent conference (“Is the politics of truth still thinkable?”) that included Badiou and was organised by Zizek. My favourite line is one of Robin’s:
Anyhow it did serve strikingly to take me right back to AntiOedipus: oh, how marxists and lacanians alike flinch violently at the very suggestion of some positive desire – as if torching cars isn’t fun! As if there were something positively indecent in the idea, that pleasure could admix with political anger.
Can anyone host the two sound files one of Zizek’s talk and one of Badiou’s?
