Review:

This is not a work of commentary but an intervention: by actualizing the categories of Badiou's Being and Event, Bartlett subverts the Aristotelian biases of Plato scholarship and exposes the sophistical basis of contemporary ideologies of education. The result brilliantly exemplifies the transformative import of Badiou's Platonism. --Ray Brassier, American University of Beirut
