This book analyses Plato's dialogues using Alan Badiou's concepts and categories. It aims to establish the logical and implicative link between the primary axiomatic statement that the only education is an education by truths and its consequent yet coincident axiomatic statement that thought is nothing other than the desire to finish with the exorbitant excess of the state. It combines the Platonic trajectory with a commitment to anti-anti-Platonism and explains that Badiou's work offers the chance to link several aspects of the Platonic corpus. It demonstrates that despite the variations of Plato's approach in the different dialogues his goal always the same.
