Abstract:While most commentators have dismissed Bataille's political commitments, this work has attempted to demonstrate the sincerity (while also emphasizing the impracticality) of Bataille's political agenda. It is the contention of this work that Bataille's politics appear incomprehensible or parenthetical to his philosophy only when his critique of the autonomous subject is viewed isolated from his politics.
