Rotten Sun

Course number: G6621

"The sun gives without receiving." With global warming, this pronouncement by Georges Bataille in The Accursed Share acquires an ironic twist. This seminar explores the philosophical and sensuous role of the sun: in Judge Schreber's Memoirs of My Mental Illness; in Delueze's and Guattari's, Anti Oedipus; in Nietzsche's, Thus Spoke Zarathustra; and in Bataille's essays on the sun in Documents and The Accursed Share, Volume 1.
