Nietzsche and the vicious circle by Pierre Klossowski( Book )

76 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long recognized as a masterpiece of Nietzsche scholarship, Nietzsche and the Vicious Circle is made available here for the first time in English. Taking a structuralist approach to the relation between Nietzsche's thought and his life, Pierre Klossowski emphasizes the centrality of the notion of Eternal Return (a cyclical notion of time and history) for understanding Nietzsche's propensities for self-denial, self-refutation, and self-consumption. Nietzsche's ideas did not stem from personal pathology, according to Klossowski. Rather, Nietzsche made a pathological use of his best ideas, anchoring them in his own fluctuating bodily and mental conditions. Thus Nietzsche's belief that questions of truth and morality are at base questions of power and fitness resonates dynamically and intellectually with his alternating lucidity and delirium
The Baphomet by Pierre Klossowski( Book )

41 editions published between 1965 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book opens with the events precipitating the dissolution of the Templar Order in 1307, the setting moves quickly beyond the historical into the theological as the focus shifts to the disembodied spirits of the dead, martyred members of the Order. The author, who identifies this work as "gnosis or fable, or Oriental tale," investigates the problematic nature of identity by asking what becomes of a soul dissociated from a body. This question is further complicated by the "pure" souls' erotic interest in the alluring and recently abandoned body of a young page, variously populated by the spirits of the dissipated Grand Master of the Order and of St. Theresaa situation that allows the author to stage a discussion of idolatry and the nature of deities

Roberte ce soir and the revocation of the edict of Nantes by Pierre Klossowski( Book )

9 editions published between 1959 and 2002 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like the works of Georges Bataille, and those of the Marquis de Sade before him, Klossowski's erotic fiction explores the connections between the mind and body. This pair of short novels merges the sexual misadventures of Octave, his striking young wife Roberte, and their nephew Antoine, with Klossowski's philosophical and theological concerns. Roberte Ce Soir is a dramatic enactment of Octave's ritual of hospitality in which Roberte offers herself to any guest who desires her, and The Revocation of the Edict of Nantes relates Roberte's predicament when she is forced to censor this same play. The resulting text represents one of the most provocative intellectual and sexual discourses of our time."--Jacket
The 120 days of Sodom and other writings by Sade( Book )

9 editions published between 1966 and 1991 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Marquis de Sade, vilified by respectable society from his own time through ours, apotheosized by Apollinaire as "the freest spirit that has yet existed," wrote The 120 Days of Sodom while imprisoned in the Bastille. An exhaustive catalogue of sexual aberrations and the first systematic exploration-a hundred years before Krafft-Ebing and Freud-of the psychology of sex, it is considered Sade's crowning achievement and the cornerstone of his thought. Lost after the storming of the Bastille in 1789, it was later retrieved but remained unpublished until 1935. In addition to The 120 Days, this volume includes Sade's "Reflections on the Novel," his play Oxtiem, and his novella Ernestine. The selections are introduced by Simone de Beauvoir's landmark essay "Must We Burn Sade?" and Pierre Klossowski's provocative "Nature as Destructive Principle." "Imperious, choleric, irascible, extreme in everything, with a dissolute imagination the like of which has never been seen, atheistic to the point of fanaticism, there you have me in a nutshell, and kill me again or take me as I am, for I shall not change."--Sade's Last Will and Testament."--http://www.amazon.com (April 19, 2011)
