How is such a communist society constructed? Since communism requires the philosopher to be in the position of power, precisely because the philosopher is not allured by power. Therefore every citizen must be a philosopher because philosophy is what enables the synthesis between political ability and philosophy But to materialize such an Idea, the state must operate without laws.
One Reply to “Plato, Our Comrade? Alain Badiou’s Hyper-Translation of Plato’s Republic”
Capital is gone from such a society because it prevents Subjects from participating in the light of truth, all of which comes with a new order of the three agencies of the Subject: Affect, Desire and Thought. Ultimately, the dialogue that Socrates teases out by the end of the text is one in which Thought becomes the modus operandi for the order of society. Much of the dialogue involves the conditions for how Subjects in this hypothetical Republic ought to conduct themselves. In the famous cave allegory, the Subjects in the cave wear headphones and listen to their iPads.
Desire is the most elusive of the three agencies because it is the real power that unites Thought and Affect When these three are connected, like notes in harmony, the Subject becomes the One that it is capable of producing Justice — There are many philosophical terms that Plato does not describe. Subjects access the truth through thought, and importantly, the truth possesses a radical indifference to what it is not.
It leaves us with a rare sense that politics can once again be associated with courage and justice, and that we have an agency at our disposal that comes in the passionate work of bringing the idea of equality communism into existence.
