I'm going to post some excerpts from the following...

Philosophy of Science
BABETTE E.BABICH
http://philpapers.org/archive/BABCPO.1.pdf


Excerpt 1: Controlling the "Omnipotence of Truth"


Given Godel's proof that 'it is impossible to demonstrate, within a
mathematical theory, that this very theory is non-contradictory,' Badiou argues that:

a reasonable ethic of mathematics is to not wish to force this point; to accept that a
mathematical truth is never complete. But this reasonable thing is difficult to
maintain. As can be seen with scientism, or with totalitarianism, there is always
a desire for the omnipotence of the True
.

Excerpt 2: Evil is the will to name at any price

Like the more politically-minded sociologist and philosopher, Jean Baudrillard, Badiou does not hesitate to identify this nominative drive [the drive for the Omnipotence of Truth] as the veritable root of all evil. 'Evil is the will to name at any price' (Badiou 2003: 66).

For Badiou: Philosophy is prescribed by several conditions that are the types of truth procedures. These types are science (more precisely the matheme), art (more precisely the poem), politics (more
precisely, politics in interiority or the politics of emancipation), and love (more precisely, the procedure that makes truth out of the disjunction of sexed positions).
