Deleuze and Philosophy

Bela Egyed

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines Gilles Deleuze's counter-attack against Alan Badiou's criticism on his concept of multiplicity contained in his What is Philosophy? It discusses Deleuze's opinion that the central philosophical concept of Badiou's L'être et l'évènement (EE) floats in an empty transcendence between a set theoretical ontology and the concrete generic function. It explores the implications that Badiou's mathematical ontology has for his theory of the event and highlights the difficulty of getting a clear idea of how Badiou sees the relation between being and event.

Keywords:   multiplicity, Gilles Deleuze, Alan Badiou, What is Philosophy?, L'être et l'évènement, mathematical ontology, being, event
