Must We Burn Sade? (French: "Faut-il brûler Sade?") is an essay by Simone de Beauvoir published in Les Temps modernes, December 1951 and January 1952. Like other writers before and after her, de Beauvoir attempts to locate traces of a radical philosophy of freedom in Sade's writings, preceding that of existentialism by some 150 years. Furthermore, de Beauvoir identifies Sade as a forerunner of Freud with an intuitive grasp of the nature of the human heart.
