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]
To place oneself in the position of God is painful: being God is equivalent to being tortured. For being God means that one is in harmony with all that is, including the worst. The existence of the worst evils is unimaginable unless God willed them.More Georges Bataille quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I enjoyed the innocence of unhappiness and of helplessness; could I blame myself for a sin which attracted me, which flooded me with pleasure precisely to the extent it brought me to despair?More Georges Bataille quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We reach ecstasy by a contestation of knowledge. Were I to stop at ecstasy and grasp it, in the end I would define it.More Georges Bataille quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Eroticism is the approval of life unto death.More Georges Bataille quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
