Abstract

Following the distinguished contemporary French philosopher Alain Badiou the author asks the question: What does it mean to change the world? Similarly, he proceeds from more abstract ontological presuppositions of the change (world, being, existence, identity) to the philosophy of political change focusing on the reach and character of the change in question. Consequently, attention is paid to factors preventing a more radical change as well as those enhancing it.
