Dany-Robert Dufour. Sade and capitalist society

Dany-Robert Dufour is a philosopher and lectured in educational sciences at the University of Paris-VIII until 2015. In this interview, he shares Pier Paolo Pasolini’s view of Sade not as a representative of fascism, but as an author who exalts the individual and the sacred law of egoism. Taking as his starting point the fact that Sade takes egoism to the extreme, Dufour draws a parallel with today’s situation of unbridled consumption and analyses how this maximum mobilization of drives exceeds the scope of the individual and may have destructive global effects.
