Together, we’ll read Theory of Religion and selected essays from Visions of Excess. We’ll examine Bataille’s claims about religion as the search for lost intimacy; the relation between humanity and animality; violence and destruction; the origins of capitalism; gnosticism and some mystics; and the nature of writing and other forms of communication.
