The Thirst for Annihilation: Georges Bataille and Virulent Nihilism by Nick Land

An important literary and philosophical figure, Georges Bataille has had a significant influence on other French writers, such as Foucault, Derrida and Baudrillard. Written as a communion, this book looks at Bataille's theoretical issues in philosophy, sociology, psychodynamics, politics and poetry. Cultural modernity is diagnosed down to its Kantian bedrock with its transcendental philosophy of the object, but Bataille's writings cut violently across this tightly disciplined reading to reveal the strong underlying currents that bear us towards chaos and dissolution - the violent impulse to escape, the thirst for annihilation.
