Sample text

With the metaphor of the chrysalis we have the sex of the woman hidden within the figure of metamorphosis. The chrysalis names one moment of the process which it also “figures,” though only as an accumulation or juxtaposition of latent figures—the larva and the imago—which serve both to veil and to reveal one another. The metamorphosis, as image, passes not into another image of something, but into the word “image” per se, the imago. The linguistic level introduces a latent figuration that gives us the image, to the extent that it names it—imago.

He goes beyond the objective awareness bounded by the walls of the chrysalis and this process, too, is linked with this reversal [renversement]. (E 39) As an intermediate form between the larva and the image, the chrysalis figures the transitional stage between animal existence and the emergence of the “perfect animal”—man as religious animal—from the limits of historical time. The image thus figures both the story of interdiction as entry into history (passage from larva to chrysalis, or from man to animal) and transgression as a leap out of history at the moment of the imago or image.

It involves two (double) moments of negation and return. First there is the moment of interdiction, presented as a negation of the state of nature which yields the passage to culture. Then comes transgression as a negation of this horizon of culture which has itself taken on the quality of the given (the donnée). This negation (or transgression) of the cultural given yields the passage to the sacred and to man as religious animal. This, we remember, was Bataille’s ethnological correction of the philosophical topos that defines man as rational animal.
