Abstract

Badiou's philosophy is often understood as an effort to create a new philosophy - after (postmodern, deconstructive) critics of the subject, systematic thinking, category of truth, etc. So far, no one has begun to venture the systematic connection of his philosophy to the "radically new beginning of philosophy" (Husserl), marked by the works of the "grandfather of revolution" (Nietzsche), René Descartes. The article follows the traces of Cartesian elements in Badiou's thoughts, showing that the two most notorious proofs given by Descartes (the infamous evidence of cogiteness and proof of God's existence), in Badiou's thoughts (especially in his meta-ontology), are very specific and unusual rearticulation. By reading this rearticulation in detail, we can define not only Badiou's relation to the theory of a subject, which is so closely related to his name, but also his view of the - negligence - of the surprising categories of the unthinkable. An article by the development of this connection between Descartes and Badiou shows that by considering it, it is possible to avoid most of the wrong readings of Badiou's ontological claims (for example, the assertion that there is a multitude) and that the new beginning for which Badiou strives can be understood as a revival Cartesianism in the new century (which follows).
