I was tempted to ask "Why didn't Badiou include religion among his conditions?," but we will never know the answer to that. So instead I will ask if there are instances in Badiou's work, or in the work of other scholars, in which religion is explicitly situated among, across or outside the "conditions"/"truth procedures" which Badiou designates as independent of philosophy.
The "conditions" Badiou names are art, love, politics, and science.
- Does religion fall under one of these headings?
- Is there an argument to be made for adding "religion" to the list as a unique condition?
- Or was religion deliberately excluded from this list?
