By Medhi Belhaj Kacem

"Mehdi Belhaj Kacem a été proche d'Alain Badiou. Il est de ceux qui connaissent le mieux, et de l'intérieur, l. a. mécanique et les ruses de son œuvre. Badiou l'a même tenu pour l'un de ses disciples les plus prometteurs. Et voilà que le disciple en est venu, par un cheminement dont il rend compte, ici, avec probité, à considérer que l'œuvre du maître contenait d'impardonnables impostures.Après Badiou est un livre joyeux et merciless. Plein d'humour et de savoir. C'est un démontage biographique (toute philosophie n'est-elle pas, selon le mot célèbre, une biographie mise en techniques ?) non moins que métaphysique (sur los angeles query de l'Evénement, sur celle de l'Universel, sur l'énigme du Mal et de l'insistante surdité de "la" philosophie à son interpellation, Belhaj Kacem avance ses propres thèses qui s'opposent element sur aspect à celles de Badiou).Comment un philosophe en vient-il, de l'apologie de Pol Pot, au déni de l'existence même du problème écologique ? D'où procède son mépris de los angeles démocratie ? Pourquoi son platonisme ne peut-il, pris à l. a. lettre, que rendre sourd et aveugle au surgissement de l'événement, le vrai, tel celui qui importait, à l'heure où ce livre s'achevait, l. a. dictature en Tunisie puis dans une huge partie du monde arabe ? Telles sont quelques-unes des questions qui hantent ce livre sincère et limpide, plein de colère et de révolte — et brûlant d'une belle ardour pour l. a. vérité.De l. a. terreur en philosophie, et remark s'en libérer. l. a. première déconstruction d'un système dont on se dit, lecture faite, qu'il ne tenait peut-être que par l'intimidation qu'il diffusait."B.-H.

Poc! Dans l’assiette [It flies... Bang! ” This waiter was obviously making fun of our ignorance. Still, no waiter in a fancy restaurant in North America would dare suggest a relationship between live animals and the contents of a plate—let alone act out the slaughter before his patrons’ eyes.
