Description - Georges Bataille: Essential Writings by Michael Richardson
This selection of Bataille's work recognizes the full breadth of his contribution as a key thinker in debates on modernity and post modernity, to critical theory, and as a major influence on Foucault, Derrida and Baudrillard. The selections are organized thematically for a better understanding of Bataille's thought. They demonstrate how his work on sacrifice, eroticism, transgression and the nature of identity informs his social theory. This work includes much previously untranslated material including the complete texts of seven key essays.
