« Le seul ouvrage qui ait montré le yet, sans néanmoins l'atteindre tout à fait ; l'unique qui ait agréablement lié l. a. luxure et l'impiété, et qui donnera enfin l'idée d'un livre immoral » : c'est en ces termes que Sade, dans l'Histoire de Juliette, rend hommage à Thérèse philosophe. Paru anonymement en 1748, ce roman est un classique – sinon le classique – de l'édition clandestine d'erotica au XVIIIe siècle. Véritable best-seller de los angeles littérature audacieuse, souvent attribué à Boyer d'Argens, il ouvre aussi de brûlants dossiers d'ordre religieux et ethical, et l'on a pu soupçonner Diderot d'en être l'auteur. Prenant prétexte d'un fait divers – le procès qui opposa, en 1730, un jésuite à sa pénitente qui l'accusait de l'avoir débauchée –, il dénonce l'influence pernicieuse de los angeles faith sur los angeles santé des esprits, et revendique, par le « raisonnement » comme par l'«exemple», le droit des corps à disposer d'eux-mêmes.
D'où l'inévitable query : 1748, année érotique, ou année théorique chaude pour l. a. philosophie ? L'une ne va peut-être pas sans l'autre...
