The Gnosis of Georges Bataille w/ Emmalea Russo & Nic Laccetti

Georges Bataille (1897–1962) was a French philosopher, author, surrealist, poet, writer of erotica, sociologist, a master of transgression and filth, a founder of a secret society, and a mystic…well a mystic of some sort…you’ll see…and a whole lot of other things! To get a handle on this unique thinker, one who associated some of his own thinking with the ancient Gnostics, we have returning guests Emmalea Russo and Nic Laccetti.
