Vol 3, No 1 (2014)


Guest Edited by: Nicolò Fazioni.  General Editors: Arthur J. Rose & Michael J. Kelly

“Rather than link the word [‘ethics’] to abstract categories, it should be referred back to particular situations. Rather than reduce it to an aspect of pity for the victims, it should become the enduring maxim of singular processes. Rather than make it merely the province of conservatism with a good conscience, it should concern the destiny of truths, in the plural.”

– Alain Badiou
