De l’opération souveraine à l’économie générale

  • Publication type: Article from a collective work
  • Collective work: La Part maudite de Georges Bataille. La dépense et l’excès
  • Author: Lala (Marie-Christine)
  • Abstract: We discuss how meditation or the “sovereign operation” gives meaning and value to excess. We consider Bataille’s œuvre as it provides us with a key to the general economy which lies at the root of sovereign behaviours. By following what attracts him or her, the human can access the affirmation of sovereignty in which the cursed element is converted into the communication of a vital exuberance. This unheard of, rational conception of expenditure introduces us to a new mode of knowledge.
