Description

Bataille uses his unique economic theory as the basis for an incisive inquiry into the very nature of civilization. Unlike conventional economic models based on notions of scarcity, Bataille’s theory develops the concept of excess: a civilization, he argues, reveals its order most clearly in the treatment of its surplus energy.
