Alain Badiou is a French philosopher. There's some information on him on the
website of European Graduate School, where he teaches cources:
He was apparently quite active during the late 1960s and was the founder of
France's third largest Maoist group UCFML (Marxist-Leninist Communist Union
of France), finally disbanded in 1984.
There seems to be a Yahoo group devoted to him:
There're bits of info on Badiou in A. Belden Fields' book Trotskyism and
Maoism in France and US. I remember there may also be something on him in
Michael Christofferson's new book French Intellectuals against the Left. But
I am not so sure.
I confess I have not read any books by Badiou. Matt Hale and Alex Day on
this list know a lot more about him.
