Abrégé de métapolitique (L'ordre philosophique) by Alain Badiou

By Alain Badiou

Publish yr note: First released in 1998

Une exigence fondamentale de los angeles pensée contemporaine est d'en finir avec l. a. « philosophie politique ».

Qu'est-ce que l. a. philosophie politique ? Son opération centrale est de ramener l. a. politique à l'exercice du « libre jugement » et de los angeles « dialogue », dans un espace public où ne comptent en définitive que les opinions.

On sait que, bien avant d'être arendtien, ou kantien, le thème de l'opposition irréductible de l. a. vérité et de l'opinion est platonicien. Ce qui, en revanche, n'est pas platonicien est l'idée que los angeles politique serait ainsi éternellement vouée à l'opinion, éternellement disjointe de toute vérité.

Sauf pour qui pense que le commentaire de bistrot, ou los angeles dialog entre amis, constitue « l'essence même de los angeles vie politique », il est en effet clair que le conflit des critiques n'est politique qu'autant qu'il se cristallise dans une décision. los angeles query d'une attainable vérité politique doit alors être examinée non du seul aspect de los angeles « dialogue », mais dans le processus complexe qui noue los angeles dialogue à l. a. décision.
