Everywhere, the twentieth century has been judged and condemned:
the century of totalitarian terror, of utopian and criminal
ideologies, of empty illusions, of genocides, of false
avant-gardes, of democratic realism everywhere replaced by
abstraction.

It is not Badiou's wish to plead for an accused that is
perfectly capable of defending itself without the authors aid. Nor
does he seek to proclaim, like Frantz, the hero of Sartre's
Prisoners of Altona, 'I have taken the century on my shoulders and
I have said: I will answer for it!' The Century simply aims to
examine what this accursed century, from within its own unfolding,
said that it was. Badiou's proposal is to reopen the dossier on the
century - not from the angle of those wise and sated judges we too
often claim to be, but from the standpoint of the century
itself.
