Titel: The Inner Experience of Living Matter
Bataille and dialectics
Forfatter: Sørensen, Asger
Resume: The dialectical aspect in the work of George Bataille is often neglected. At the suggestion of Foucault and Derrida, Bataille is most often even taken to be a non-dialectical thinker. But Bataille worked intensely with Hegel's ideas, his thought was expressed in Hegelian terms, and both his epistemology and his ontology can be considered a determinate negation of Hegel’s position in the Phenomenology. This is shown, first, by analyzing Bataille’s notions of ‘inner experience’, and, second, by showing how Bataille extends dialectics to the natural, non-human realm, and even conceives the link between the human and non-human as itself dialectical. However, once we see the dialectical nature of his theoretical stance, we are struck by a great vagueness in his practical conception of where society ought to be going.
