6. Description Abstract This chapter discusses the life and work of Alain Badiou in the context of critical theory and early Christianity. The chapter follows Badiou’s own piece about his life: “Philosphy as Biography,” outlining nine key topics of his philosophy and life as they relate to early Christian studies: math and poetry, the Paris Commune and Pauline communities, the event, “the raw” in the present, hostile seduction, Marxism and the subject, love, Plato, Sartre and Lacan and Althusser. The chapter ends by summarizing the three essays in this section by Bruce Worthington, James Crossley, and Hollis Phelps, and suggests further research on Badiou’s ideas about the language of faith and their connection with early Christian texts.
