Return to Book Page. Sade My Neighbor by Pierre Klossowski. 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 neighhor “the unthinkable” Enlightenment ideals of a society rooted in liberationist reason and morality were trampled in the wake of the savagery of the Second World War.
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: 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.

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 ,y 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 klossowskii 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 Klossoeski, 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, neihgbor works the unweaving of their radical thread. Sade ever remains, in the shadows of the Sde, at its limits and thus its heart, the fil s radical.
Sep 12, Scott added it Recommends it for: A few days ago I started reading this book about super-villain philosopher Sade to think about outrage and the necessity neigbbor 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. Klsosowski gave up on this one for now.
Hey it’s Indian-summer here, so I’d rather ride the bike. Oct 26, Tosh rated it really liked it Shelves: 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 Neibhbor 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 klossowsmi is one of the first on that subject matter. May 17, Elijahethan rated it really liked it.
