Peter Mathews (pdmathews) | 215 comments Could someone please add the Amazon covers and original publication dates for these two books:


Published in 2018.


This is a transcript of Badiou's 1994-1995 seminar - so, 1995?

Abcdarian | 19905 comments Done, except for original dating of #2. Was there a publication of his seminar work in 1995? I combined the English translation with the French, but that seems to be published in 2013.

Peter Mathews (pdmathews) | 215 comments I'm not sure about the GR policy for this. I have seen seminars (by Heidegger, Lacan) published as books given the date in which the seminars/lectures were actually delivered publicly, while other books that are even in the same series are some given the date when the transcript was published.

The earliest publication of the earliest version of the content should be used. In most cases I would think that would be the transcript, although perhaps sometimes a written version was published at the same time as the lecture was given.
