Badiou, Democracy, Derrida


Taking the most discussed question of ‘democracy' from the Greek myths and Prometheus'gifts up to nowadays, the paper pursues two main tasks: first, gets together some suggestions shed through the agile volume ‘Democracy in What State, second, pausing at the known Plato's Allegory of the Cave goes on to the Alain Badiou's Plato' Republic hyper -translation. All the way up to the end, as an appendix, explores such connections/ disconnections within the disputed issue of Democracy into the net and onto the net, and finally come down to Derridean ‘democracy to come'. Although the paper pursues these seemingly disparate tasks, it must be regarded as a unified whole that  above all brings in focus the theme of democracy yesterday, and today, and tomorrow.
