Abstract:

Blanchot describes a world where the Absolute has finally overcome all other rivals to its authority. The State is unified, universal, and homogeneous, promising perfect satisfaction. Why then does it find revolt everywhere? Could it be the omnipresent police? The plagues? The proliferating prisons and black markets? Written in part as a description of post-World War II Europe, Blanchot's dystopia charts with terrible clarity the endless death of god in an era of constantly metamorphosing but strangely definitive ideologies.
