Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? Enlightenment ideals of a society rooted in liberationist reason and morality were trampled in the wake of the savagery of the Second World War. That era's union of cold technology and ancient hatreds gave rise to a dark, alternative reason--an ethic that was value-free and indifferent with regard to virtue and vice, freedom, and slavery. In a world where "the unthinkable" had become reality, it is small wonder that theorists would turn to the writings of a man whose eighteenth-century imagination preceded twentieth-century history in its unbridled exploration of viciousness, perversion, and monstrosity: the Marquis de Sade. Klossowski was one of the first philosophers in postwar Europe to ask whether Sade's reason, although aberrant and perverted to evil passions, could be taken seriously.

Klossowski was one of the first philosophers in postwar Europe to ask whether Sade's reason, although aberrant and perverted to evil passions, could be taken seriously. Klossowski's seminal work inspired virtually all subsequent study of Sadean thought, including that of de Beauvoir, Deleuze, Derrida, Bataille, Blanchot, Paulhan, and Lacan.

Klossowski was not the first European thinker to take Sade seriously, beyond mere decorative appropriations meant to shock, by a handful of avant gardists, most famously the Surrealists, but also Apollinaire, Swinburne, and Heine among others. Just a few years earlier, in "Juliette or Enlightenment and Morality," from their seminal Dialectic of Enlightenment , exiled German cultural critics of Frankfurt School Adorno and Horkheimer, in so many words, argue that once we inevitably reject the naive Klossowski was not the first European thinker to take Sade seriously, beyond mere decorative appropriations meant to shock, by a handful of avant gardists, most famously the Surrealists, but also Apollinaire, Swinburne, and Heine among others.

Just a few years earlier, in "Juliette or Enlightenment and Morality," from their seminal Dialectic of Enlightenment , exiled German cultural critics of Frankfurt School Adorno and Horkheimer, in so many words, argue that once we inevitably reject the naivety of Hegelian and Kantian ethics, the Enlightenment project, emptied of its universalism and ethical content, because "it's irrational to care for the weak," logically ends in barbarism--the dead end of instrumental reason, with Sade and Nietzsche in all their unsavoriness waiting in rubble.

In contrast to the apocalyptic sociopathy Adorno and Horkheimer attribute both noble madmen, Klossoswski places positive value on Nietzsche and Sade whose thought represent the dark underside the Enlightenment, the two studies consisting of half-hagiography, half-proto-schizoanalysis, through the lens of a negative theology. Of course, this study is really just a means of developing his own theories, so many of the leaps are forgiven.

Might recommend first reading Blanchot's page essay on Sade. View 2 comments. Dec 05, Alex Obrigewitsch rated it it was amazing. This work bears a great historical importance, Klossowski being one of the seminal figures in taking seriously the study of Sade as a philosophical figure. But this work retains its import even today. It may aid the reader not only in thinking through the erotic philsophy of Sade, but it also speaks to the thinking at play in Klossowski's own works, especially his fictions.

As Klossowski notes, Sade's thought is the thought of Man pushed to its limits - disclosing the essence of Man in all its vi This work bears a great historical importance, Klossowski being one of the seminal figures in taking seriously the study of Sade as a philosophical figure. As Klossowski notes, Sade's thought is the thought of Man pushed to its limits - disclosing the essence of Man in all its violent negation; the inherent monstrosity that rages in the heart of each and every one of us.

By seeking to explore this monstrous heart, the being who transgresses being Man in order to most fully be Man, in becoming the monstrous singularity in affrontation of God, language, and all universal or general norms or laws. In striving towards the impossible through the negative heart of humanity, Sade takes up the imagination as a means of denying action - a useless writing that careens into madness only to set before the reader an intimate image of their ownmost egoity.

The creative-destructive power of this monsteous writing opens up a proliferation of possibilities that God's creation and actuality render impossible. At work in Sade's works is the revolutionary heart, in revolt against God, utitlity, telos and the Good. And, contradictory enough, this shattering of reason works itself out, working itself into the exhaustion of worklessness, through the extremity of reason itself - the violent madness that is the essence of reason, moving ever about its limits, in conjunction with the monstrosity that is the essential limit of humanity.

Thus does Sade take the thought of his age, of the Enlightenment, to its very end - and in doing so he destroys it, or rather, allows it to destroy itself, as it must. Sade is truly a son of the Revolution, his thought the rotten sun of their reason, his works the unweaving of their radical thread. Sade ever remains, in the shadows of the Enlightenment, at its limits and thus its heart, the fil s radical. Oct 26, Tosh rated it really liked it Shelves: books-bought.

Pierre Klossowski is a very interesting writer and of course a wonderful artist. He's also the brother of Balthus, the painter. And "Sade My Neighbor" is probably the first text to treat Sade as a serious thinker and philospher. A fascinating historical figure, Sade is not very sexy, unless you think 'power' is sexy. With the French world French revolution exploding, Sade is one of the key figures when the shit hits the fan. And this book is one of the first on that subject matter.

A few days ago I started reading this book about super-villain philosopher Sade to think about outrage and the necessity of outrage in a world gone mad, and also to support some of what I've read in Lacan and a recent brush with Derrida.

So far I am a little bored and lost with Klossowski's treatment, but I will trudge forward and hope to glean a few tidbits here and there.

Update: I gave up on this one for now. Hey it's Indian-summer here, so I'd rather ride the bike. May 17, Elijahethan rated it really liked it.
