El siglo by Alain Badiou

By Alain Badiou

"El siglo XX ha sido juzgado y condenado: siglo del terror totalitario, de las ideologías utópicas y criminales, de las ilusiones vacías, de los genocidios, de las falsas vanguardias, de l. a. abstracción como sustituto ubicuo del realismo democrático. No deseo abogar por un acusado que sabe defenderse solo. Tampoco quiero, como Frantz, el héroe de l. a. pieza de Sartre 'Los secuestrados de Altona', proclamar: 'Me eché el siglo al hombro y dije: ¡Responderé por él!'. Sólo quiero examinar lo que este siglo maldito, desde el inside de su propio devenir, ha dicho que period. Quiero abrir el legajo del siglo, tal como se constituye en el siglo y no por el lado de los sabios jueces ahítos que pretendemos ser. Para hacerlo, utilizo poemas, fragmentos filosóficos, pensamientos políticos, obras teatrales. Todo un fabric, que algunos presumen anticuado, a través del cual el siglo declara en pensamientos su vida, su drama, sus creaciones, su pasión. Y veo entonces que a contrapelo de todo el juicio pronunciado, esa pasión, l. a. del siglo XX, no fue en modo alguno los angeles pasión por lo imaginario o las ideologías. Y menos aún una pasión mesiánica. l. a. poor pasión del siglo XX fue, contra el profetismo del siglo XIX, l. a. 'pasión de lo real'. l. a. cuestión period 'activar' lo Verdadero, aquí y ahora."

Example text

14 If we instead assume that E grows or shrinks to encompass all of reality, we still encounter a problem. Invariance would then entail that all “negative” truths must correspond to E (because E must exist) 12 13 14 I’m assuming unicorns could be added. If you are like Saul Kripke and doubt unicorns are possible, then simply run the argument in terms of a “negative” proposition about something you think could exist, such as a thousand-story building. The arguments I give do not presuppose that there actually are such things as possible worlds (be they maximal states of affairs or concrete Lewis worlds).

2 Funny facts 31 that is equivalent to a universal generalization corresponds to E, then every proposition alike corresponds to E. 8 Therefore, although every proposition may be equivalent to a universal generalization, the standard view is that not every proposition corresponds to the same reality. But if that is so, then we cannot infer that No Unicorns corresponds to E merely from the fact that No Unicorns is logically equivalent to a universal generalization. In short, correspondence and equivalence are very different matters.

If there were an explicit analysis of the truth in (Truth), then truth would be inflated: it would have a nature that is analyzable. It would be inappropriate to object to deflationism on the grounds that its account of truth isn’t expressible in the terms of an explicit analysis. That’s just the view. On the other hand, we may like to have an explicit analysis of truth that elucidates how truth relates to reality. It seems the truth-value of a proposition is sensitive to what happens to things other than the proposition itself: affect the cat, and you thereby affect a proposition about the cat.
