    Badiou s first book, from presentations written for and partially delivered in Althusser s Philosophy Course for Scientists It is, among other things, a nice record of Badiou s early period, at his closest to Althusser I was still an Althusserian at the time, he says in the concluding interview, although Balibar and Macherey have both gone on record disputing the use of this term , Bachelard, and Canguilhem The book builds nicely off of Althusser s course Philosophy and the Spontaneous Philosoph [...]
