Most widely held works by Pierre Klossowski
Nietzsche and the vicious circle by Pierre Klossowski( Book )
80 editions published between 1969 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 837 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 )
47 editions published between 1965 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 533 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
Such a deathly desire = Un si funeste désir by Pierre Klossowski( Book )
42 editions published between 1963 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 460 libraries worldwide
Roberte ce soir and the revocation of the edict of Nantes by Pierre Klossowski( Book )
10 editions published between 1969 and 2002 in English and held by 381 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

La 4ème de couv. indique :"Au sortir d'une période où je fus ramené trois fois de suite au même thème dont résultèrent trois variations, le phénomène de la pensée me revient, tel qu'il s'était produit, avec ses hausses, ses chutes et ses absences, lorsqu'un jour, ayant cherché à relater quelques circonstances de ma vie, il m'arriva d'être bientôt réduit à un signe. La persistance d'un nom qui en forme le prétexte rend compte à elle seule d'un fond de pensée monotone. ... Fasciné par le nom de Roberte en tant que signe, alors que j'étais dans le jardin sans plus rien voir de l'ensoleillée verdure autour de moi, n'ayant d'autre vision que la pénombre insituable où se jouait la lueur de sa main dégantée - je me décide à décrire ce qui doit se passer dans cette pénombre, ici illusoire. Je réfère au nom de Roberte ce que je vois et que je ne verrais point à défaut de ce nom." Avant de donner lieu à une méditation, le signe unique est pour Pierre Klossowski une révélation expérimentale. Ce prénom, sans lequel il ne pourrait ni voir ni écrire, présente une absolue qui s'appelle la pensée. Maurice Blanchot commente ainsi Les lois de l'hospitalité : "Les pages les plus dramatiques qu'une écriture abstraite puisse nous donner à lire aujourd'hui."
