Жорж Бата́й — французский философ и писатель левых убеждений, который занимался исследованием и осмыслением иррациональных сторон общественной жизни, разрабатывал категорию «священного». Его литературные произведения переполнены «кощунствами, картинами искушения злом, саморазрушительным эротическим опытом».


„Когда ты в отчаянии, трудно остаться целым.“

„Идея спасения приходит к тому, кого страдание уничтожает.“


„Даже слово «тишина» производит шум.“

„Поэзия всегда в некотором смысле противоположна поэзии.“

„Необходимость сбиться с пути, быть уничтоженным – это исключительно личная, давняя, неистовая и не дающая покоя истина, не имеющая ничего общего с тем, что мы называем реальностью.“

„I believe that truth has only one face: that of a violent contradiction.“ Violent Silence: Celebrating Georges Bataille

„The need to go astray, to be destroyed, is an extremely private, distant, passionate, turbulent truth.“

„Nothing is more necessary or stronger in us than rebellion.“ The Unfinished System of Nonknowledge


„A kiss is the beginning of cannibalism.“

„Beauty is desired in order that it may be befouled; not for its own sake, but for the joy brought by the certainty of profaining it.“ Erotism: Death and Sensuality

„We have in fact only two certainties in this world - that we are not everything and that we will die.“

„I don't want your love unless you know i am repulsive, and love me even as you know it.“


„Incredible nervous state, trepidation beyond words: to be this much in love is to be sick (and I love to be sick).“ The Impossible

„To others, the universe seems decent because decent people have gelded eyes. That is why they fear lewdness. They are never frightened by the crowing of a rooster or when strolling under a starry heaven. In general, people savor the "pleasures of the flesh" only on condition that they be insipid.
But as of then, no doubt existed for me: I did not care for what is known as "pleasures of the flesh" because they really are insipid; I cared only for what is classified as "dirty." On the other hand, I was not even satisfied with the usual debauchery, because the only thing it dirties is debauchery itself, while, in some way or other, anything sublime and perfectly pure is left intact by it. My kind of debauchery soils not only my body and my thoughts, but also anything I may conceive in its course, that is to say, the vast starry universe, which merely serves as a backdrop.“
Story of the Eye

„In what will survive me
I am in harmony
with my annihilation.“

„The sexual act is in time what the tiger is in space.“
