Is there any way to see the badges of the user whose profile I am currently viewing? I can see all the badges listed but there is no way to see a summary that is behind every post that this person has made.

For example, lets see summary of Jeff Atwood's badges or Jeff's badges in chronological order. If you click on any badge on this list, you get a list of posts on which that badge was awarded, for example, Jeff's Great Answer posts.
It's been a while since this was implemented so let's go over all the ways you can view the badges of any user. We've had some profile reworks since the earlier answers so some of the links aren't quite correct.

A short version of this list is also available on the Summary tab. This also links to the Badges tab.
In the Activity tab of a profile, you can also trawl through a chronological organization of when they earned each of their badges. It will not tell you which posts earned each badge, but as with the main list, you can click on relevant badges to see the full selection of posts that earned them the badge (which is from most to least recent).

Which will show you:
