Badiou and Cinema

Alex Ling

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter considers cinema as an ontological art or an art that figures the relations of being and its appearing, explores the intricacies of Alain Badiou's set-theoretical ontology and his more recent logical phenomenology, and explains a new ontology of cinema. It reviews Samuel Beckett's 1965 Film and argues that it was a work concerned less with subjectivity than with objectivity.

Keywords:   cinema, ontological art, being, appearing, Alain Badiou, set-theoretical ontology, Samuel Beckett, Film, subjectivity, objectivity
