The Ethics of Political Resistance

Althusser, Badiou, Deleuze

First Edition

Chris Henry

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Brings together the work of Althusser, Badiou and Deleuze to offer a new idea of political practice
  • Develops a structural ontology that gives rise to non-idealist, non-dogmatic and yet ethical practices of resistance against the return of classical ontological dualities
  • Contributes to the 'ontological turn', problematising tacit assumptions in the literature such as to be/to not be, the unity of the faculties of understanding, and a formal distinction between epistemology and ontology
  • Closely reads Badiou's metaphysics and critiques his concepts of two Platonic and one Parmenidean dyads
  • Highlights the importance of time in Althusser's work
  • Reads Deleuze through unlikely, yet important, encounters with Mill and Althusser
