Distributed for Zone Books. Most Anglo-American readers know Bataille as a novelist. The Accursed Share provides an excellent introduction to Bataille the philosopher. Here he uses his unique economic theory as the basis for an incisive inquiry into the very nature of civilization.

Unlike conventional economic models based on notions of scarcity, Bataille's theory develops the concept of excess: a civilization, he argues, reveals its order most clearly in the treatment of its surplus energy.

The result is a brilliant blend of ethics, aesthetics, and cultural anthropology that challenges both mainstream economics and ethnology.

The Accursed Share, Volume 1

This is a part of a series on terms and concepts that I find particularly resonant. All the more reason to explore alternative framings, just as George Bataille did in his book The Accursed Share. Imagine you and your friends are splitting a pizza, and there is an extra piece. Who gets it? And what happens next? Perhaps it becomes the prize in a game of trivia. Perhaps the winner has a little extra energy, perhaps they get fat.

The Accursed Share: An Essay on General Economy French : La Part maudite is a book about political economy by the French intellectual Georges Bataille , in which the author presents a new economic theory which he calls "general economy". It is considered one of the most important of Bataille's books. According to Bataille's theory of consumption, the accursed share is that excessive and non-recuperable part of any economy which must either be spent luxuriously and knowingly without gain in the arts, in non-procreative sexuality, in spectacles and sumptuous monuments, or it is obliviously destined to an outrageous and catastrophic outpouring, in the contemporary age most often in war, or in former ages as destructive and ruinous acts of giving or sacrifice, but always in a manner that threatens the prevailing system. The notion of "excess" energy is central to Bataille's thinking.
