Alain Badiou taught at the Ecole Normale Superieure and at the College International de Philosophie in Paris, France. His most recent book The Immanence of Truths: Being and Event III is coming out in 2020 with Bloomsbury.
In this lucid and provocative essay, one of our greatest living thinkers inquires after the meaning of happiness. Badiou argues that projects of emancipation and liberation are the surest means to an active, non-complacent contentment, although `Happiness' is as much a spirited defense of classical philosophy as it is a call to action. We need Alain Badiou more than ever. * Tom Eyers, Associate Professor, Duquesne University, USA *
