Post-anarchists have hitherto depended on post-structuralist reviews of ontological essentialism in an effort to situate their discourse relating to the conventional anarchist discourse. Post-anarchism calls for the elaboration of one other very important line of critique opposed to epistemological foundationalism – to complete this activity, this booklet takes post-anarchism to its restrict via a interpreting of the philosophy of Georges Bataille. Georges Bataille's philosophy allows new methods of conceiving anarchist ethics that aren't predicated upon essentialist different types, foundationalist truth-claims, or the enterprise of the topic within the political context.
