Reading for 7/28

Odd Jobs hasn’t shown up yet, regrettably. Never heard back on which Bataille to tackle Tuesday in case of this contingency, so I’m just going to suggest we do a fairly short piece of his on “The Definition of Heterology”. If you’d like more (totally optional) reading to flesh out this idea of Bataille’s, you might also look at the essays “Base Materialism and Gnosticism”, “Use Value of D.A.F. de Sade”, or “The Psychological Structure of Fascism”; all of which are in the collection Visions of Excess (also included in this week’s filebin in both pdf and epub to suit your pleasure). But, for Tuesday, let’s just plan to focus on “Definition of Heterology”. I do hope you all enjoy it. See you soon, friends.
