“It will finally have suggested that between the 'dignity' proper to man and the baseness that leads him to exterminate his own kind, two tasks are ultimately assigned to us: to recognize in the other, even when he seems to us the most strange and the most alien, a similitude, and at the same time to recognize in ourselves, whatever it may be, an 'obstinacy in the negative existence' that no limit can contain. As if 'hoping to see one man' could not proceed without the cruel question of the inhumanity 'that man has inflicted on man' throughout history.” -Georges Bataille, Humanity (Verso, 1986), p. 22.
