(p.70) Chapter 2 Site
Badiou and Plato

A. J. Bartlett

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter aims to provide a working explanation of how the site functions within Alan Badiou's conception of a truth procedure sufficient to applying it to Plato's dialogues. It presents a schematise description of the site applicable to the analysis of the dialogues and explains the ontological provenance of this term site. The analysis reveals that in the Platonic situation the name of the site is education and this is recognised by the situation and is used by the state to describe its own practices.

Keywords:   site, Alan Badiou, Plato's dialogues, ontological provenance, education, state
