It falls to Sade to become the first modern thinker to insist on the close relationship between the phantasm and its commercial valorisation, thus on the role of money as a sign of the phantasm's inestimable value. Money is an integral part of the representative mode of perversion. Because the perverse phantasm is inherently unintelligible and inexchangeable, money constitutes (by its abstract character) its universally intelligible equivalent. But we must distinguish between two things here in Sade: on the one hand, the phantasmatic function of money, the act of buying or of being sold, insofar as money is only an exteriorisation of perversity, a means of realising it between different partners; and on the other, the mediating function of money between the closed world of abnormalities and the world of institutional norms.
