Other Available Formats:

An essay where the idea of Masochism is something far more subtle & complex than the mere enjoyment of pain. Masochism is shown to have absolutely nothing to do with Sadism. It is an attempt to restore to Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's novel Venus in Furs, the rigorous & informed philosophical examination that is due it.
Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) was Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris VIII, Vincennes/Saint Denis. He published 25 books, including five in collaboration with F+®lix Guattari.
