The True Life
The True Life: A Plea for Corrupting the Young
'I m 79 years old. Why the devil then should I be spending time talking about youth?'
With a certain degree of self-awareness, renowned French philosopher Alain Badiou examines here the state of youth today. Building on the ideas outlined in his adaptation of Plato s Republic, Badiou argues provocatively for a corruption of youth, not in the pursuit of power, sex or money, but rather philosophy itself, which ultimately is 'the true life'.
Alain Badiou is a writer, philosopher and an Emeritus Professor at the École normale supérieure, Paris.
