  Here, in a context where art, philosophy and anthropology were merging, Bataille tried to question the idea of formlessness as simply applying to things without form. This book, through a diversity of articles in various domains, asks how and why ‘the formless’ is such a dominant idea from the nineteenth century onwards and it asks the.   Art is about form.

This situation creates an interesting challenge for the visual arts: to find a form for formlessness, to show the form that has no form.

The papers in this volume challenge the concept of form and aim to set out, explore and develop different theories and examples of 'the formless'. In so doing, they raise questions of form, and notions of formlessness (as distinct from something called 'the formless'). The starting point for many of the contributors is Georges Bataille's highly influential article entitled 'informe' ('formless'). or you are in a position of providing support for someone moving through this journey, this book can provide a sense of calm in the midst of these difficult events.

  I bought a book about comparative mysticism recently. Most of it is familiar territory. I’ve read a lot on comparative mysticism, and I’ve made my own comparisons of various mystics. But what attracted me to this book was the author’s analysis of thought and sensation in the context of “form and formlessness”.   Treatises are better suited to poetic forms that grant space for explication. Of course, there are the rare haiku maxims that lodge within mind and recycle there almost indefinitely. But still, even those are usually in image form, avoiding overt exposition. And those maxim haiku are probably not really haiku anyway, but successful aphorisms.
