Але́н Бадью́ — современный французский философ.


„Зло — это следствие нашей слабости в действиях, которые должны были привести к справедливости.“

„Перед лицом глобального капитализма лагерь, основанный на идее равенства, по-прежнему не имеет глобальной идеи, с помощью которой можно было бы противостоять капиталистической катастрофе, и более того, этот лагерь раздирают национальные противоречия самого абсурдного характера. Этот контраст является самым главным и самым тревожным парадоксом нашего времени.“


„Love without risk is an impossibility, like war without death.“ In Praise of Love

„Evil is the moment when I lack the strength to be true to the Good that compels me.“ Ethics: An Essay on the Understanding of Evil

„What kind of world does one see when one experiences it from the point of view of two and not one? What is the world like when it is experienced, developed and lived from the point of view of difference and not identity? That is what I believe love to be.“ In Praise of Love

„Those who have nothing have only their discipline.“

„We could say that love is a tenacious adventure. The adventurous side is necessary, but equally so is the need for tenacity. To give up at the first hurdle, the first quarrel, is only to distort love. Real love is one that triumphs lastingly, sometimes painfully, over the hurdles erected by time, space and the world.“ In Praise of Love

„All resistance is a rupture with what is. And every rupture begins, for those engaged in it, through a rupture with oneself.“ Metapolitics


„Love can only consist in failure... on the fallacious assumption that it is a relationship. But it is not. It is a production of truth.“ Conditions

„I think… that love encompasses the experience of the possible transition from the pure randomness of chance to a state that has universal value. Starting out from something that is simply an
encounter, a trifle, you learn that you can experience the world on the basis of difference and not only in terms of identity. And you can even be tested and suffer in the process. In today’s world, it is generally thought that individuals only pursue their own self-interest. Love is an antidote to that. Provided it isn’t conceived only as an exchange of mutual favours, or isn’t calculated way in advance as a profitable investment, love really is a unique trust placed in chance. It takes us into key areas of the experience of what is difference and, essentially, leads to the idea that you can experience the world from the perspective of difference. In this respect it has universal implications: it is an individual experience of potential universality, and is thus central to philosophy, as Plato was the first to intuit.“
In Praise of Love

„I would say, if you like, that the party is like an out-moded mathematics... that is to say, the mathematics of Euclid. We need to invent a non-Euclidian mathematics with respect to political discipline.“ The Concept of Model: An Introduction to the Materialist Epistemology of Mathematics

„The oppressed peoples of the earth are not objects for the exquisite turmoil of European consciences. They are subjects from which to learn how to exercise political intelligence and action. Obviously, colonial arrogance is a long time dying.“ Cinema


„There is always only one question in the ethics of truth: how will I, as some-one, continue to exceed my own being?“ Ethics: An Essay on the Understanding of Evil

„Christianity grasped perfectly that there is an element in the apparent contingency of love that can’t be reduced to that contingency. But it immediately raised it to the level of transcendence, and that is the root of the problem. This universal element I too recognize in love as immanent. But Christianity has somehow managed to elevate it and refocus it onto a transcendent power. It’s an ideal that was already partly present in Plato, through the idea of the Good. It is a brilliant first manipulation of the power of love and one we must now bring back to earth. I mean we must demonstrate that love really does have universal power, but that it is simply the opportunity we are given to enjoy a positive, creative, affirmative experience of difference. The Other, no doubt, but without the “Almighty-Other”, without the “Great Other” of transcendence.“ In Praise of Love

Starting out from something that is simply an encounter, a trifle, you learn that you can experience the world on the basis of difference and not only in terms of identity.

„We pose only those questions whose answers are the pre-given conditions of the questions themselves.“ The Concept of Model: An Introduction to the Materialist Epistemology of Mathematics
