Georges Bataille

Georges Bataille

French writer and philosopher
[F]or academic men to be happy, the universe would have to take shape. All of philosophy has no other goal: it is a matter of giving a frock coat to what is, a mathematical frock coat. On the other hand, affirming that the universe resembles nothing and is only formless amounts to saying that the universe is something like a spider or spit.More Georges Bataille quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I teach the art of turning anguish into delight.More Georges Bataille quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The essence of morality is a questioning about morality; and the decisive move of human life is to use ceaselessly all light to look for the origin of the opposition between good and evil.More Georges Bataille quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Sacrifice is nothing other than the production of sacred things.More Georges Bataille quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
By inner experience I understand that which one usually calls mystical experience: the states of ecstasy, of rapture, at least of meditated emotion. But I am thinking less of confessional experience, to which one has had to adhere up to now, that of an experience laid bare, free of ties, even of an origin, of any confession whatever. This is why I don't like the word mystical.More Georges Bataille quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
