In Man and the Sacred, Caillois demonstrates how humanity’s ambiguous attitude toward the sacred influences behavior and culture. Caillois analyzes the role of the forbidden in the social cohesion of the group. He examines the character of the sacred in the light of specific instances wnd taboos and transgressions, exploring wide differences in attitudes toward diet and sex and extreme behaviors associated with the sacred, such as rapture and paroxysm.
He also discusses the festival – cailloid exuberant explosion following a period of strict repression – and compares its functions with those of modern war.
