Sade Mon Prochain ("Sade My Neighbor") is a philosophical book by Pierre Klossowski first published in 1947 by Seuil, a work that has influenced French thinkers from de Beauvoir and Bataille to Derrida and Lacan. Klossowski sees in Sade Nietzsche's forerunner, positing a nihilism that recognizes pure motion as the only metaphysical reality.

It analyzes Sade's philosophy as a precursor of nihilism, negating Christian values and the materialism of the Enlightenment.
