Sade, Donatien Alphonse, marquis de

(1740–1814)
French pornographer and madman. His nihilism as much as his obsession with the psychopathology of unbridled violent lust has given him a remarkable symbolic role in the thought of writers such as Foucault, the French theorist Gilles Deleuze (1925– ), and others concerned with sexual desire and its relationship to political power . See also wickedness.
