Citações Alain Badiou

„Ethics defines man as a victim.“

— Alain Badiou
Context: The heart of the question concerns the presumption of a univerasl human Subject, capable of reducing ethical issues to matters of human rights and humanitarian actions. We have seen that ethics subordniates the identification fo this subject to the universal recognition of the evil that is done to him. Ethics defines man as a victim. It will be objected: 'No! You are forgetting the active subject, the one that intervenes against barbarism!'So let us be precise: man is the being who is capable of recognzing himself as a victim. Chapter One, Section III: "Man Living animal or immortal singularity?"

The quote is a commentary on Ludwig Wittgenstein, "Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent".
