Return to Book Page. Preview — Masochism by Gilles Deleuze. Leopold von Sacher-Masoch. Jean McNeil Translator. In his stunning essay, Coldness and Cruelty , Gilles Deleuze provides a rigorous and informed philosophical examination of the work of the late 19th-century German novelist Leopold von Sacher-Masoch.

Deleuze's essay, certainly the most profound study yet produced on the relations between sadism and masochism, seeks to develop and explain Masoch's "peculiar way of 'desexualizing' love while at the same time sexualizing the entire history of humanity. Venus in Furs , the most famous of all of Masoch's novels was written in and belongs to an unfinished cycle of works that Masoch entitled The Heritage of Cain.

The cycle was to treat a series of themes including love, war, and death. The present work is about love. Although the entire constellation of symbols that has come to characterize the masochistic syndrome can be found here - fetishes, whips, disguises, fur-clad women, contracts, humiliations, punishment, and always the volatile presence of a terrible coldness - these do not eclipse the singular power of Masoch's eroticism.

Jun 12, Oriana rated it really liked it Shelves: read-pre-goodreads. Aww, I'd forgotten all about this book. Many moons ago, I was going to write my senior thesis on, roughly, "Sadism and Masochism in the Stories of Franz Kafka," with this book as one of my primary sources.

I inhaled this book and several others , wrote about 30 pages, consulted with the ancient visiting Kafka scholar whose class I'd been taking, wrote another dozen pages, then realized I'd rather put out my own eyes than write any more on this vaguely creepy topic.

I did a creative thesis inste Aww, I'd forgotten all about this book. I did a creative thesis instead. Looking back, maybe I was kind of a wimp. May 27, Stephen rated it it was amazing Shelves: philosophy. I never realized masochism and politics go so well together. Deleuze begins his march through this insensitive topic by drawing a distinction between it and sadism through the uses of humor: "A popular joke tells of the meeting between a sadist and a masochist; the masochist says: 'Hurt me.

It is unrealistic because a genuine sadist could never tolerate a masochistic victim. Neither would the masochistic tolerate a truly sadistic torturer. It looks like ole Gilles is having some fun at the expense of the Left.

Oh no, here comes Badiou and Zizek with their pitchforks! How do you explain Kafka and friends overcome with laughter at Kafka's reading of The Trial? How come disciples of Socrates couldn't contain themselves either at the death of their beloved teacher?

Or put another way, why do we allow ourselves to be manipulated by the narrative conceits of crappy novelists? Waiting, disavowal, suspense, fetishism, fantasy aren't isolated, private phenomena. One needs to believe that one is not dreaming, even when one is. Marquis de Sade's Juliette advises two weeks of abstaining from lustful behavior. If you can manage that then lie down and imagine for yourself different wanton acts. One will move you more powerfully than the rest and it will become like an obsession - write it down!!

Sounds like a cheap form of psychoanalysis. But this leads to the penultimate chapter, "Humor, Irony and the Law. The wrath of God is no more than the chorus of everyone's disapproval we hear in our own language, which they have yet to address to us directly thus, nightmares and bad dreams.

Plato set up "The Good" as the basis of all law: Christianity followed. Kant subverted this basis, changing it to "The Law" itself: our current human rights regime followed. What is "The Law", really? Who knows, since it's as unknowable as God. We in the West have simply replaced one inscrutable world system for another, even as atheists are convinced they have all the answers.

This is the world described by Kafka. She was stopped dead in her tracks by Tartt quoting Nietzsche: "We have art in order not to die from the truth.

Unlike Tartt quoting it optimistically the words actually come from a Nietzsche entry labeled Pessimism in Art. This friend, brilliant as ever, describes for us the masochism others receive from novel reading she is unwilling to allow herself, "The increasing delay in the plot: those narrative deferments which deliberate teasings I'll never get used to - just tell them about your dead phone Theo!

Very Poor psychoanalysis mostly stemming from false assumptions and fallacies of the human sexuality. View all 6 comments. Apr 09, Julian Mathews rated it really liked it Shelves: difference-and-repetition-prep-list , psychoanalysis , in-my-library , french-theory , erotic. Sadism is essentially institutional, anarchic, apathetic, employing the quantitative power of demonstrative reason in an attempt to kill the mother and the ego in service of the superego, while Masochism is aesthetic, qualitative, cold, cruel, relies on the contract and employs suspense and disavowal to expel the superego and father in favor of a de- and re-sexualized ego, the new man under auspice of the Oral Mother.

Deleuze at his most overtly psychoanalytic, but perhaps most accessible since the subject is singular and focused. Feb 15, Adam rated it liked it. I confess a preexisting lukewarmness toward Deleuze stemming from a battle with "Bergsonism" years ago: the climb was wearying and the view unrewarding.

But I read Sade recently, and as of today I'm still married, so it was time to find out just how much of a Masochist I must be. Cuz we all must be, more or less, now that Sade's prescription for universal prostitution has been enshrined as economic dogma and daily routine for both sexes. Furs and whips are optional. The novel is more of a lugubr I confess a preexisting lukewarmness toward Deleuze stemming from a battle with "Bergsonism" years ago: the climb was wearying and the view unrewarding.

The novel is more of a lugubrious melodrama than a racy romance. Radically distinguishing psychological from sensual masochism for a moment, the sad fatalism is summarized in tones echoing Dostoyevsky's unforgettable "Make us your slaves, but give us bread! I shall be lost, I cannot live without you. So if you don't have enough pain, sadness, impotent longing, failure, shame, and humiliation in your own miserable life, have some of Severin's!

Deleuze is at least correct that masochism and sadism must not be confined to the hackneyed shades of a "pleasure-in-pain" continuum. There is not, as he repeats and repeats and repeats, a single sadomasochistic complex. Yet his overweening effort to categorically separate what masochism IS from what sadism IS and ne'er shall the twain meet is unconvincing, forced and a bit sloppy.

He argues like one of the ancient Green rhetoricians who had to prove their skill by defending an obviously indefensible position, i. Deleuze's account is less interesting than those of Freud or Lacan, whom he purports to be critiquing. However, the chapter "Humor, Irony and the Law" stands out as some of his best writing. The question "Why do people hug their chains? The clinical riddle of masochism proper is not entirely separate from questions of mundane submissiveness and passivity, but they ought not be conflated.

Masochism: Coldness and Cruelty & Venus in Furs

In the Foreword Deleuze states that Masoch has a particular way of "desexualising love while at the same time sexualizing the entire history of humanity". Deleuze attempts to "cut through" the various forms of expression and content that are the artistic creation of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch. He also attempts to develop a problematic of masochism in contradistinction to sadism, concluding that the two forms of 'pornology' are non-communicating, and cannot be integrated into Sadomasochistic entity. Deleuze argues that Masochism is something far more subtle and complex than the enjoyment of pain and that Masochism has nothing to do with Sadism. Deleuze starts off by first moving from the clinical practice of associating proper names to diseases Parkinson's and Roger's disease for instance. However, sometimes it is the patient's name that denotes the illness, as in the case of Masochism and Sadism. History of medicine, says Deleuze, can be regarded as a history of the illness leprosy, plague that dies and changes over time, and a history of the symptomatology.
