Introducing Marquis de Sade (Introducing...)by Stuart Hood
Synopses & Reviews
Places Sade clearly in the materialist current of Western philosophy, describing how his writings have influenced subsequent authors and artists and how his ideas continue to be debated by modern critics and feminists.
The Marquis de Sade has been condemned as a vile monster and pornographer. Why is he judged so dangerous, even to this day?
Stuart Hood acknowledges de Sade as a philosopher of the Enlightenment who took libertarian atheism to its absolute limit! However, "sadism" is far more than a sexual perversion. It was de Sade's weapon of exploration into the fundamental nature of morality. Hood, with integrated illustrations by Graham Crowley place their subject in the materialist current of Western philosophy.
