Post-anarchists have hitherto trusted post-structuralist opinions of ontological essentialism so as to situate their discourse when it comes to the conventional anarchist discourse.

Georges Bataille's philosophy makes it possible for new methods of conceiving anarchist ethics that aren't predicated upon essentialist different types, foundationalist truth-claims, or the corporation of the topic within the political context. After Post-Anarchism, we problem the hegemony that epistemology has loved for numerous centuries of political and philosophical suggestion.

Power, as we have seen, does not reside in the state, or in the bourgeoisie, or in law: its very place is that of a ‘non-place’ because it is shifting and variable, always being re-inscribed and reinterpreted” (italics in original; Newman,  2007: 81). That this non-place can only be articulated from within the confines of conceptions of place, or in relation to the foundation of place itself, therefore poses a unique challenge for ethical philosophers: is the paradox of non-place significant enough as to lead one to reject its answer to the question of place?
