Money Wisdom #337

"...the autonomy of Hegel's 'absolute knowledge' is that of discourse unfolding in time. Hegel situates subjectivity not in the object's disintegration (always begun anew) but in the identity that subject and object attain in discourse. But in the end 'absolute knowledge,' the discourse in which the subject and the object become identical, itself dissolves into the NOTHING of unknowing, and the vanishing thought of unknowing is in the moment."

Georges Bataille The Accursed Share Vol 3 Sovereignty (1988 [1967]) p.369
