Jeremy Biles and Kent Brintall provide and introduction to the life and thought of Georges Bataille. In addition to his publications, the introduction examines Bataille’s political affiliations over the course of his life, his reaction to the onset of World War II, and his engagement with intellectual contemporaries. Rather than promoting the canonization of Bataille’s work, the introduction and following essays seek to reintegrate him into the numerous scholarly debates that his work helped to shape.
