A Short Treatise on Transitory Ontologytransl. Badiou argues for resurrecting the practice of communism. Badiou’s theory of truth, exposited throughout his work, accomplishes this strange mixture by uncoupling invariance from self-evidence such that invariance does not imply self-evidence elogi, as well as by uncoupling constructedness from relativity such that constructedness does not lead to relativism.

Badiou at once embraces the traditional modernist notion that truths are genuinely invariant always and everywhere the case, eternal and unchanging and the incisively postmodernist notion that truths are constructed through processes.

According to Badiou, truth procedures proceed to infinity, such that faith elkgio outstrips knowledge.
