Sacher-Masoch, Leopold Von


Born Jan. 27, 1836, in L’vov; died Mar. 9, 1895, in Lindheim, Hesse. Austrian writer.

Sacher-Masoch’s best works were romantically colored novellas depicting the everyday life and customs of the peoples oppressed by the Austro-Hungarian monarchy: the collections Galician Tales (1871; new edition, 1881), Hebrew Tales (1878), and New Hebrew Tales (1881). The origin of the term “masochism” is linked with the pathological themes of Sacher-Masoch’s erotic novels (Venus in Furs and others).

"Sadismo" y "masoquismo" son, segun Deleuze, dos entidades clinicas marcadamente distintas (no solo en lo que respecta a la sintomatologia o a la forma del goce atribuible a cada caso sino tambien en lo que concierne a la estetica literaria de Sade y Masoch).
It is probably no coincidence that the same year Deleuze felt the need to come back to Sade and Masoch and to delve deeply into the relationship among law, guilt and desire.
Michel Foucault takes Deleuze's philosophical understanding of the work of Sade and Masoch and develops a pragmatic model of sociality.
