The cradle of humanity : prehistoric art and culture by Georges Bataille( Book )
14 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 422 libraries worldwide
"The Cradle of Humanity: Prehistoric Art and Culture collects Georges Bataille's essays and lectures spanning thirty years of his research in anthropology, comparative religion, aesthetics, and philosophy. These were neither idle nor idyllic years; the discovery of Lascaux in 1940 coincides with the bloodiest war in history - with new machines of death, Auschwitz, and Hiroshima. Bataille's reflections on the possible origins of humanity concur with the intensified threat of its possible extinction." "For Bataille, prehistory is universal history; it is the history of a human community prior to its fall into separation, into nations and races. The art of prehistory offers the earliest traces of nascent yet fully human consciousness - of consciousness not yet fully separated from natural flora and fauna nor from the energetic forces of the universe. A play of identities, the art of prehistory is the art of a consciousness struggling against itself, of a human spirit struggling against brute animal physicality. Prehistory is the cradle of humanity, the birth of tragedy." "Bataille reaches beyond disciplinary specializations to imagine a moment when thought was universal. Bataille's work provides a model for interdisciplinary inquiry in our own day, a universal imagination and thought for our own potential community. The Cradle of Humanity speaks to philosophers and historians of thought, to anthropologists interested in the history of their discipline and in new methodologies, to theologians and religious comparatists interested in the origins and nature of man's encounter with the sacred, and to art historians and aestheticians grappling with the place of prehistory in the canons of art."--Jacket

Keuze uit het werk van de Franse filosoof (1897-1962)
Georges Bataille by Stuart Kendall( Book )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 261 libraries worldwide
"Georges Bataille's was a life of paradox. Famous for his friendships with Maurice Blanchot, Michel Leiris and Andre Masson, Jacques Lacan and Colette Peignot, among others, he was infamous for his feuds with Andre Breton and Jean-Paul Sartre. Famous as a celebrant of communal life, he was, like Nietzsche, a great solitary. Famous for his often pornographic fictions, he signed them pseudonymously. Famous among the famous, he was among the most influential writers of his century. Yet the diverse body of his work as a whole remains largely unknown." "Bataille's life was lived in opposition. A mystic, he was also an atheist in a Catholic land. He violently opposed all of the defining intellectual currents of his day - Surrealism, Marxism, Existentialism, psychoanalysis, the French school of sociology - while retaining and reshaping their essential lessons. Indeed, Bataille made crucial contributions to fields ranging from the arts and letters to sociology, psychology, theology and economics. He became arguably the greatest influence on the next generation of artists and intellectuals. More so than any other thinker, Georges Bataille occasioned the post-structuralist revolution in twentieth-century thought and literature." "Stuart Kendall distils the life and work of a writer who courted controversy into a concise and yet informative biography that reveals the tensions and contradictions of both Bataille and his times."--Jacket
Utopia deferred : writings from Utopie (1967-1978) by Jean Baudrillard( Book )
5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 236 libraries worldwide
"Utopia Deferred collects all of the essays Jean Baudrillard published in Utopie in their original form as well as a recent interview with the author. These essays, torn from the headlines of the tumultuous decade following May 1968, surpass Marxism itself."--Jacket
Guilty by Georges Bataille( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 179 libraries worldwide
Guilty is a searing personal record of spiritual and communal crisis, wherein the death of god announces the beginning of friendship. It takes the form of a diary, recording the earliest days of World War II and the Nazi occupation of France, but this is no ordinary day book: it records the authorʹs journey through a war-torn world without transcendence. Batailleʹs spiritual journey is also an intellectual one, a trip with Hegel, Kierkegaard, Blake, Baudelaire, and Nietzsche as his companions. And it is a school of the flesh wherein eroticism and mysticism are fused in a passionate search for pure immanence. -- from (Jan. 22, 2014)
On Nietzsche by Georges Bataille( Book )
3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 165 libraries worldwide
"Georges Bataille wrote On Nietzsche in the final months of the Nazi occupation of France in order to cleanse the German philosopher of the "stain of Nazism." More than merely a treatise on Nietzsche, the book is as much a work of ethics in which thought is put to the test of experience and experience pushed to its limits. At once personal and political, it was written as an act of war, its publication contingent upon the German retreat. The result is a poetic and philosophical--and occasionally harrowing--record of life during wartime. Following Inner Experience and Guilty, On Nietzsche is the third volume of Bataille's Summa Atheologica. Haunted by the recognition that "existence cannot be at once autonomous and viable," herein the author yearns for community from the depths of personal isolation and transforms Nietzsche's will to power into his own will to chance. This new translation includes Memorandum, a selection of 280 passages from Nietzsche's works edited and introduced by Bataille. Originally published separately, Bataille planned to include the text in future editions of On Nietzsche. This edition also features the full notes and annotations from the French edition of Bataille's Oeuvres Complètes, as well as an incisive introductory essay by Stuart Kendall that situates the work historically, biographically, and philosophically."--Publisher's description

Terrence Malick : film and philosophy by Thomas Deane Tucker( Book )
15 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 147 libraries worldwide
Terrence Malick's four feature films have been celebrated by critics and adored as instant classics among film aficionados, but the body of critical literature devoted to them has remained surprisingly small in comparison to Malick's stature in the world of contemporary film. Each of the essays in Terrence Malick: Film and Philosophy is grounded in film studies, philosophical inquiry, and the emerging field of scholarship that combines the two disciplines. Malick's films are also open to other angles, notably phenomenological, deconstructive, and Deleuzian approaches to film, all of which are
Love, poetry = L'amour la poésie by Paul Éluard( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 81 libraries worldwide
When Editions gallimard published Love, Poetry (L'amour la poesie) in 1929, the book's success secured Paul Eluard's reputation as perhaps the greatest poet of his immediate generation. Paul Eluard (1895-1952) was one of the founders, along with Andre Breton and Louis Aragon of the Surrealist group. He had rocketed into public view earlier with his collection of Surrealist poems: Capital of Pain, but Love, Poetry cemented his reputation as a poet with a growing international reputation. --Black Widow Press
