In Philosophy Now, beefeater mocks French philosopher.
Badiou says that French philosophers in the Twentieth Century looked for something in German philosophy. We could say that, lacking an emperor themselves, they decided to steal imperial clothes from the Germans; but the German Emperor of Philosophy, Martin Heidegger, had no clothes. So they stole his lack of clothes instead, and now wear that lack proudly – and feel irritation if any rosbif laughs at them.
