‘My proposition is at the beginning to formalize not what the paradigm of the world is but what the fundamental relations are which formalize, finally, the fact for a multiplicity to be the world. That is the point. After that, when you know what the transcendental is, what the discussion of the multiplicity of the transcendental, and so on is, you can propose many forms, in fact an infinite multiplicity of different forms of the paradigm of the world.’
Alain Badiou in an interview with John Van Houdt, continent, 1.4 (2011): 234—238.
And I fiddle around with ‘partial paradigm’ bla while he just says it. Sigh.
