Abstract

While Hardt and Negri adopt a critical and philosophical perspective founded on a vitalist, empirical ontology, this essay argues the insufficiency of this framework to think a politics of equality. Only the speculative recourse to a non-dogmatic philosophy of absolute truths, of the kind proposed by Alain Badiou and more recently by his former student Quentin Meillassoux, can allow us to formulate a political prescription of justice as equality, independently from its contingent presentations in our being in the world.
