about this item

This book serves as the first English translation of French philosopher, translator, and artist Pierre Klossowski's (1905-2001) La Monnaie vivante from 1970, which analyzes economic production as a mechanism of the psychic production of desires and argues that economic norms are modes for the expression and representation of implulsive forces. It also contains a newly edited and corrected version of the 1985 translation of his earlier piece Sade and Fourier, which he drew on while writing the book. Also provided are an introduction to his ideas and the book, in addition to an essay on Sade and Fourier. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
