Pocket Pantheon is an invitation to engage with the greats of postwar thought, such as Lacan, Sartre and Foucault, in the company of one of today's leading political and philosophical minds. Alain Badiou draws on his encounters with this pantheon - his teachers, opponents and allies - to offer unique insights into both the authors and their work. These studies form an accessible, authoritative distillation of continental theory and a capsule history of a period in Western thought.

Badiou's sardonically compressed style is never less than pungent. --Steve Poole, The Guardian
A refreshing reassertion of the radical possibilities of philosophy. --David Revill, THE
