In one speculative stroke Bataille lays out the drama that successively plays out between immanence and transcendence between the continuity with the rest of the world that the consciousnesssubject is immersed in and the discontinuity introduced first by the positing of the tool as an object bestowed with a purpose This or less inaugurates a process whereby the wretched consciousness increasingly becomes alienated from itself being reduced to the world of thingscalculationrationalitymoralityaccumulation Thus man longs for a long lost intimacy of violence rupture For Bataille what is sacreddivine is necessarily violent extra moral gut wrenching wasteful glorious Sacrifice then which is always a sacrifice of useful things is a precarious precedure that momentarily restores the thing to its SACRED plateau and momentarily opens man up to the divine by denying its objective reality as a thing ie destruction Festivals in this case are half way compromises between production and nonproductive expenditure But what happens when the scission between immanence and transcendence reaches its apogee in the dualism of good sacred and the evil sacred whereas previously there was only violence without violence being split into violence enacted for the purpose of upholding the real socialmoral order and unrestrained violence once production unhinged from scandalous consumption is at liberty to develop its own productive forces for who knows what ends The conseuences can only be dire According to Bataille this reduction of the sacred itself to the status of THINGHOOD into a thing whose violence sustains the world of things instead of something sovereign an end in itself actually blots out all possibility of regaining the intimate experience of the sacred However not all is lost as the onanistic development of productive forces also drives the development of science which can become a vessel of a CLEAR SELF CONSCIOUSNESS The annihilation of the surplus or the excess must be carried out on our own terms and without a clear self consciousness accompanying it we will end up ruining ourselves in the process eg warfare

What is Theory of Religion Theory of Religion is than anything a Nietzschean reading of Marx It s a text that places the Nitzechean immanence and chaos of sensation at the centre in contrast to Marx s apparent fealty to reason It undermines his Feurbachian theory of religion by reaching back into the prehistoric through the sacrifice revealing the creation of a logic the order of things that reorganizes society the divine and human according to an logic of production and universalism Not religion as human estrangement but as subsumed into an estranged logicBataille argues for an attack on this logic by it s own tools against a science that produces knowledge a science that produces non knowledge a self consciousness of the obscurity of the intimate Rather than the clear and reduced false immanence produced by the estranged logic of the order of thingsIn Georges Bataille s Theory of Religion we see the seeds that would blossom in Foucault Deleuze Jean Luc Nancy etc It s a work that bridges the old world of Hegel s science and the enlightenment project with it s contemporary critiue While this also means that Bataille suffers from presenting a less sophisticated analysis than his students I believe that this text still offers a wealth of insight through passages that beg for exposition through Heidegger or said students I now look forward even to reading The Accursed Share
