Testimonials

Feedback on Justin's previous online course.

Alex Talan

"I appreciated Justin's ability to clarify and suggest practical applications of Deleuze. I enjoyed the lectures and will be revisiting them in the future. The course discussions were well facilitated, encouraging an atmosphere of fellowship and open dialogue."

Raven Connolly

How it works

Georges Bataille (1897–1962) was one of the most extraordinary thinkers of the twentieth century. The purpose of this course is to explain and develop most of Bataille's main themes: Sun, Economy, Excrement, Politics, Death, Sacrifice, Acéphale (headlessness), Sovereignty, and Revolution.
Content. When you enroll, you're given an 8-week reading list on the themes listed above. You're also given 8 pre-recorded lectures (videos as well as text and podcast equivalents). All course content is hosted within the course website.
Community. After enrolling you will also receive an email inviting you to join a private community forum, accessible only to participants in the course.
Network. The private course community is hosted by IndieThinkers.org, a larger network of independent intellectuals and creators. When you're invited to create an account for the private course community, you'll see it's embedded in a broader forum and social network including other lecturers, authors, podcasters, Youtubers, etc. Please feel free to use the

The seminars are conducted via Zoom, which you'll need to download once (free). Every Saturday at 12pm Eastern from July 11 to August 29, 2020. Final seminar is the Proseminar.
