In Praise of Love: Fidget Forum

Join us for our first Fidget Forum of 2022! We’ll be discussing In Praise of Love by French philosopher Alain Badiou.

French philosopher Alain Badiou turns his attention to love. A new century, new threats to love… Love without risks is like war without deaths – but, today, love is threatened by an alliance of liberalism and hedonism. Caught between consumerism and casual sexual encounters devoid of passion, love – without the key ingredient of chance – is in danger of withering on the vine. He develops a new take on love that sees it as an adventure, and an opportunity for re-invention, in a constant exploration of otherness and difference that leads the individual out of an obsession with identity and self.
