Most widely held works by Roger Caillois
Man, play, and games by Roger Caillois( Book )
156 editions published between 1958 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,804 libraries worldwide
"Play is "an occasion of pure waste: waste of time, energy, ingenuity, skill, and often of money." It is also an essential element of human social and spiritual development." "In this study, Roger Caillois defines play as a voluntary activity that occurs in a pure space, isolated and protected from the rest of life. Within limits set by rules that provide a level playing field, players move toward an unpredictable outcome by responding to their opponents' actions. Caillois qualifies types of games and ways of playing, from the improvisation characteristic of children's play to the disciplined pursuit of solutions to gratuitously difficult puzzles. He also examines the means by which games become part of daily life, ultimately giving cultures their most characteristic customs and institutions."--Jacket
Man and the sacred by Roger Caillois( Book )
221 editions published between 1936 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 1,529 libraries worldwide
"Throughout the world, people believe that much of what they do is accidental, ordinary, and inconsequential, while other acts can bring on divine retribution or earn eternal grace. In Man and the Sacred, Caillois demonstrates how humanity's ambiguous attitude toward the sacred influences behavior and culture." "Drawing on a diverse array of ethnographic contexts. Caillois analyzes the role of the forbidden in the social cohesion of the group. He examines the character of the sacred in the light of specific instances of taboos and transgressions, exploring wide differences in attitudes toward diet and sex and extreme behaviors associated with the sacred, such as rapture and paroxysm. He also discusses the festival - an exuberant explosion following a period of strict repression - and compares its functions with those of modern war."--BOOK JACKET

L' @oeuvre de Caillois présente un panorama d'une grande variété. L'homme est un esprit encyclopédique dont les essais se déploient dans des domaines éloignés les uns des autres, mais aussi un écrivain qui reconnaît sur le tard une vocation contrariée. Pleinement inscrite dans la vie intellectuelle et littéraire française des années 1930-1950, son oeuvre donne surtout lieu à d'importantes transgressions génériques et se caractérise par son hétérogénéité. Caillois réunit en effet dans sa personne les dispositions antithétiques, d'un côté, de l'austérité et de la tradition universitaire et, de l'autre, de l'éclectisme et de la volonté de rupture des avant-gardes littéraires. La difficulté de la sociologie de Pierre Bourdieu à expliquer le caractère composite de l'oeuvre de Caillois trouve son origine dans une réduction des déterminations psychiques à des déterminations sociales. Le sociologue confond en effet sous le même terme de "distinction", d'un côté, le processus de différenciation immanent à la réalité sociale et, de l'autre, la manière dont chaque écrivain occupe de manière subjective sa position et transforme les représentations qui lui sont attachées
