This week Columbia University Press goes Badiou! Our featured books are The Incident at Antioch/L’Incident d’Antioche: A Tragedy in Three Acts / Tragédie en trois actes and Plato’s Republic by Alain Badiou, translated by Susan Spitzer with introductions by Kenneth Reinhard. In this post, we have our second introduction of the day: Reinhard’s introduction to Plato’s Republic. In this essay, Reinhard discusses Badiou’s “Platonism of the multiple” and his “hypertranslation” of Plato’s famous Republic.
