This chapter offers a brief introduction to Alain Badiou's philosophy. It highlights the crucial role of ‘conditioning’ and discusses Badiou's concept of ‘inaesthetics’, or his approach to art, which treats it as a condition of philosophy. The chapter analyses Badiou's major works including L'Etre et l'événement and proposes more cogent hypotheses as to why Badiou escaped Anglophone attention for so long.

Keywords:   Alain Badiou, philosophy, conditioning, inaesthetics, art, L'Etre et l'événement
