Editorial Reviews

Over the past 30 years the writings of Georges Bataille have had a profound influence on French intellectual thought, informing the work of Foucault, Derrida, and Barthes, among others. Against Architecture offers the first serious interpretation of this challenging thinker, spelling out the profoundly original and radical nature of Bataille's work. Hollier has not only written a series of interlocking essays which manage to roam representatively over and under the six thousand pages of Bataille, a polygraphic author of the most bewildering complexity, but be has taken the master's method to heart and has written not a book about Bataille but a book through him: he has turned Bataille on and even against Bataille. The result is a superb, even a supreme critical work.
