Sample text

And that is why we find in the mystical book (in the margin of silence verbalized by discourse that is stripped of meaning) a comprehensible content: in particular, a philosophical content. 52 It is Kojève’s notion of a mystic that has no need to write that bothers Bataille, who views writing as the best way to extend the possibility of this strange interplay of presence and absence that characterizes the form of mystical experience at stake for Bataille. Before we can turn to the relationship between mysticism and writing, however, we must first clarify the ontological structure of the former.

44 Here Agamben completes his reading of Bataille by showing how the image he glimpsed opens onto pure immanence, outside of being. This contrasts with Blanchot’s encounter with Bataille in The Unavowable Community, which leads him to the image of the sacred female body, consigned to death much in the same way as were the small group of initiates that briefly glimpsed the acephalic being on the outskirts of Paris. This is the first point of Agamben’s encounter with Blanchot, its element of critique or negativity.

The woman cuts them, and the man is free to die because his life has lost its mystery. 17 Titian’s painting is an image of this life that has lost its mystery. “To be sure,” Agamben writes, “in their fulfillment the lovers learn something of each other that they should not have known—they have lost their mystery—and yet have not become any less impenetrable. 19 This oscillating subject defies the mechanism of the law, the “anthropological machine” that divides the human from the animal in order to produce the human via an isolation and suspension of the animal.
