Keywords: Badiou | multitude | pluralism | Enlightenment

The text tries to emphasize the importance of defense of tradition of pluralism of thinking and critically enlightened mind within the context of more recent political and economic attacks of neoliberal model and various forms of religious neo-conservatism. If we accept a philosophy of pluralism as a philosophy of multitude then it is possible to conceptualize it through Negri's and Hardt's, as well as Virno's concept, with a special emphasis on the concept of generic multitude by Badiou. A key point of the text is the thesis that the primary intellectual task today is defense of the right of the truth: that is multitude without One, therefore it means promotion of heterogeneous, contingent multitude.
