THE NEED OF DISPUTE NOT ONLY ABOUT FORMAL CONDITIONS OF UNIVERSAL TRUTH
Languages of publication
The author criticizes the abstract character of Badiou's St. Paul-derived universalistic subjectivity, notably his omissions of the relation between 'organic body' and 'inorganic body' (Hegel, Marx, Bergson), or the 'great mystic' and its essential influence on the entire universe. He accuses the author of neglecting the personalistic aspects of St. Paul's - and entire Christianity's - thought; He also contests his not-open theory, which he denies the full status of universalism. He praises the breaking down of all conceptual and communal particularism and resulting need for communication (always and to all) based on spiritual essence reaching beyond bodily laws ('death', 'legislation').
