Man, play, and games by Roger Caillois( Book )

153 editions published between 1958 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 1,800 WorldCat member 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

Longtemps considérée comme l'unique anthologie du genre (la première version ayant paru en 1958). Très important pour la préface, cet ensemble demeure l'un des meilleurs recueils en ce domaine, tant par les vastes choix très judicieux que par son universalité. Une préface substantielle de 22 pages instaure le bilan des idées de l'auteur sur le sujet. Trente textes intégraux illustrent l'apport anglo-saxon et germanique à cet univers insolite de la littérature. Un deuxième tome représente les pays latins, slaves et orientaux avec quarante textes sélectionnés. Un livre considérable dont l'échantillonnage fait autorité
