Badiou's remarkable reading of Beckett seeks to deliver the work of this great writer from the grasp of existentialist phenomenological readings. However, I argue that Badiou#39;s reading of Beckett opens the way for a deeper consideration of the existential issues embedded in Badiou's own work and that this is most fruitfully approached by recalling the thought of Sartre.
