Un don rationnel

  • Publication type: Article from a collective work
  • Collective work: La Part maudite de Georges Bataille. La dépense et l’excès
  • Author: Hamano (Koichiro)
  • Abstract: Consumption, the first volume of The Accursed Share, is based on two hypotheses : the mass of transcendence energy in any system is destined for waste ; sovereign expenditure (i. e. squander and unproductive consumption) and action (or operation) are incompatible. This second hypothesis leads Bataille to emphasize two necessary facts : if the sovereign moment should be completely disconnected from action/operation, it is also necessary to limit – with rational means – the excessive development of the latter in the interest of sovereignty.
