Void Universalism is, arguably, Sergei Prozorov’s magnum opus. Consisting of two volumes, Ontology and World Politics (OWP) and Theory of the Political Subject (TPS), Void Universalism links the individual to the international, the particular to the universal, and nothing to everything. With this publication, Sergei Prozorov establishes himself as the most innovative contemporary scholar in international political theory, placing himself on equal terms with Alain Badiou, Jean-Luc Nancy, and Giorgio Agamben, with whom his work is in deep conversation. He writes with a precision that exemplifies a command of sophisticated concepts that is unparalleled.
