Sade: From Materialism to Pornography

Dublin Core

Description

Examines influences of materialist philosophers of the Enlightenment on Sade's thinking and writing and how Sade adapts these various philosophies to create his own transgressive approach to materialism. In so doing, Warman shows how violence, sexuality and pornography oppose in Sade's work concepts of law and morality and how this opposition is closely linked to his materialist world view.
