    A Malady of the Left and an Ethics of Communism.Andrey Gordienko - 2021 - Sartre Studies International 27 (1):99-128.
    One cannot be responsible for a generic truth, argues Badiou in his critical rejoinder to Sartre; one can only be its militant. Challenging Badiou’s formulation, I propose that his plea for a new stage of the communist hypothesis, which unfolds in the wake of subjective decomposition of the Left, must draw upon the Sartrean notion of collective responsibility to affirm interminable inscription of the egalitarian axiom in a novel political sequence without forcing a violent realisation of equality. Encapsulated in an (...)

    Politics and Philosophy in the Red Years: Badiou, Sartre, Althusser and the Problematic of Suture.Andrey Gordienko - 2019 - Substance 48 (3):64-81.
    Alain Badiou’s intellectual relationship with Jean-Paul Sartre is an ambivalent and complicated one, encompassing a profession of discipleship that commences the former’s philosophical itinerary, a subsequent detachment, and an inevitable return. The wavering and strained nature of this relationship is brilliantly conveyed in the very title of Badiou’s essay, “Commitment, Detachment, Fidelity”, in which the author admits that his initial exposure to Sartre’s thought amounted to nothing less than “the philosophical lightning strike” before proceeding to expound upon a progressive distancing (...)

    The Acephalic Community: Bataillean Sovereignty, the Question of Relation, and the Passage to the Subject.Andrey Gordienko - 2019 - Continental Philosophy Review 52 (1):75-90.
    The present essay reconsiders Georges Bataille’s politics of the impossible in light of Jean-Luc Nancy’s and Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe’s collaborative work conducted at the Centre for Philosophical Research on the Political. In particular, my submission critically assesses Nancy’s and Lacoue-Labarthe’s concerted effort to displace the problematic of the subject to make room for a new ground of the political derived from Bataillean conception of community. While Bataille’s philosophy proved to be decisive to Nancy’s and Lacoue-Labarthe’s exploratory research at the Centre, it (...)

    The Cause of the People: Sartre's Encounter with Lacan in Badiou's Theory of the Subject.Andrey Gordienko - 2019 - Paragraph 42 (2):188-204.
    In one of his late interviews, Alain Badiou acknowledges that his concept of the event can be traced back to Jean-Paul Sartre's notion of the group-in-fusion, presented in the Critique of Dialectic...
