Erotism: Death and Sensuality, Bataille, Georges
4 Bataille, Georges Erotism: Death and Sensuality
San Francisco City Lights 1986 0872861902 / 9780872861909 First City Lights Edition Paperback Like New 
City Lights, 1986. First City Lights Edition. Softcover; 276 pages, plus bibliography and index. No marks or writing to book. Covers glossy and clean. As new.

Taboo and sacrifice, transgression and language, death and sensuality—Georges Bataille pursues these themes with an original, often startling perspective. He challenges any single discourse on the erotic. The scope of his inquiry ranges from Emily Bronte to Sade, from St. Therese to Claude Levi-Strauss and Dr. Kinsey; and the subjects he covers include prostitution, mythical ecstasy, cruelty, and organized war. Investigating desire prior to and extending beyond the realm of sexuality, he argues that eroticism is "a psychological quest not alien to death." " . . . one of the most original and unsettling of those thinkers who, in the wake of Sade and Nietzsche, have confronted the possibility of thought in a world that has lost its myth of transcendence."--Peter Brooks, New York Times Book Review "Bataille is one of the most important writers of the century."--Michel Foucault "[An] urgent, thrusting book about love, sex, death and spirituality by Georges Bataille."--Mark Price, Philosophy Now Georges Bataille (1897-1962) was a French intellectual and literary icon who wrote essays, novels, and poems exploring philosophical and sociological subjects such as eroticism and surrealism. City Lights published more of Bataille's works including The Impossible, The Tears of Eros, and Story of the Eye.

5 Berlin, Isaiah The Proper Study of Mankind: An Anthology of Essays
Farrar, Straus & Giroux 1997 0965607992 / 9780965607995 Paperback Very Good 
Clean softcover, with no marks or writing in book. Almost like new, but there is a trace of light wear to corners. 704 pages.

This selection of the best of Latvian-born British philosopher Isaiah Berlin's essays represents the full range of his work. The opening sections include Berlin's defence of philosophy and history against assimilation to the methods of science; his essays on liberty, which laid a foundation for subsequent discussion; and his exposition of his most distinctive doctrine - pluralism - which recognizes that equally good ultimate values may come into conflict. What follows are studies of Machiavelli, Vico and Herder, essays on Russian writers, and portraits of important contemporaries from Akhmatova and Pasternak to Churchill and Roosevelt. This collection encapsulates the principle movements that characterize the modern age.
