This chapter discusses previously held conceptual problems of contemporary, time, event, and truth and compares how the three philosophers would react to each other's ideas. The chapter examines their relationship to one another, if any, in terms of methods in the fields of psychoanalysis and philosophy. It reviews the influence of Freud on the Lacanian position, the interest which is lacking for Deleuze. Deleuze notes of Badiou's ideas that philosophy is subordinated to a logicised vision of science. Badiou criticizes Deleuze around the charge of mishandling the category of multiplicity. The complexities of these three thinkers are analyzed further to the point of much learning and experience. The relationship of Badiou to Delezue and Lacan is characterized by what they (Deleuze and Lacan) do not know what they can do.
