dc.description.abstract Badiou's references to Heidegger are surprisingly infrequent, given his obvious admiration for the great German think: "Out epoch can be said to have been stamped and signed by the return of the question of being. That is why it is dominated by Heidegger' )D 18). He does not build his philosophy atop Heidegger's own, as might fairly be said of other recent French thinkers such as Derrida, Levinas, Merleau-Ponty, or Sartre. While Badiou's references to Heidegger are often tantalising, they are never quite central to his own ambitions, which emerge more explicitly in dialogue with Hegel and Lacan. At times his admiration for Heidegger resembles that of a jazz saxophonist for a jazz drummer: two performers working in the same idiom and sometimes able to collaborate, but generally incapable of direct technical influence. en
