La politique de Georges Bataille

  • Publication type: Article from a collective work
  • Collective work: La Part maudite de Georges Bataille. La dépense et l’excès
  • Author: Fautrier (Pascale)
  • Abstract: To the foundations of humanist thought – moral and political economic – Bataille juxtaposes a “realistic” foundation : justify the general elevation of the standard of living and social spending not by means of a supposed equilibrium between needs and resources, but by taking into account the structural nature of the “unproductive expenditure” and its transformation into a deadly drive when contradicted or prohibited. The philosopher proposes a more radical version than Freud of “civilizational malaise”.
