“If a truth is never communicable as such, it nevertheless implies, at a distance from itself, powerful reshapings of the forms and referents of communication.”

(L’ethique: Essai sur la conscience du Mal (1993), Alain Badiou)

 “…the whole of modern thought is imbued with the necessity of thinking the unthought…”

“ Even before prescribing, suggesting a future, saying what must be done, even before exhorting or merely sounding an alarm, thought, at the level of its existence, in its very dawning, is in itself an action- a perilous act.”

(Les Mots et les choses (1966), Michel Foucault)
