“Sade seems to follow only his own call, but on a closer look, his compulsion towards excess is still a result of the deadlock of not fully taking one’s discovery for being one’s own cause into account.” – “We can only be ethical if we do not rely on any pre-given ideas of what is Good. This is the discovery that Kant didn’t follow through to the end, not ready to risk doing good beyond any Good already established, to act outside the coordinates established by others, deciding only in accord with one’s own sense of duty, one’s own call.” – Andre Vantino on Lacan’s Sade
