Nov 10, Travelin added it Shelves: And it’s true, he does reads like a mature adult and not a rebellious teenager anymore. De filosofie van Emil Cioran: Cioran’s florid prose cuts to the essence of Being, free of all metaphysical and idealistic baggage – offering a dark and disconcerting reality, perhaps, but one in which even the greatest cynic can finally find some mode of human agency.

Hij beschreef zijn vertaalwerk als ‘het eindpunt van een epilepsieaanval’ en de Franse taal vergeleek hij met een dwangbuis. View all 5 comments.

Basta que puedan ser pensadas, para que sean. De gebalde of in aforismen gefragmenteerde gedachte werd niet voor niets zijn handelsmerk. Because just look at it: Despite the fact that this is kind of a contradiction I think that if we read and try to make an analogy it again sounds like a joke. God is a failure brevario he created Bachenthusi “Anyone who speaks in the name of others is always an imposter.

Quote by Emil Cioran: “Sólo el instante es divino infinito irremediabl”

Aan de hand van talrijke quotes en verwijzingen spint hij een strak web van intertekstualiteit, zonder dat hierdoor de leesbaarheid in het gedrang komt. Ciorans stijl is wispelturig, niet-systematisch, idiosyncratisch. Het bestaat uit zes grote delen, die op hun beurt ingedeeld zijn in meer dan honderdveertig korte, vignetachtige hoofdstukken. But, I find arguments like this so often amount to burying one’s head in the sand, and throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Bijna elke zin kan probleemloos uit zijn context worden gelicht, zonder aan betekenis of waarde te hoeven inboeten.


Hij noemde zichzelf ooit veelbetekenend ‘un homme de fragment’. Bleak, yet I cannot help but laugh. He then began writing in French a book that, thanks to numerous intensive revisions, would eventually become the impressive A Short History of Decay — the first of a series of ten books in which Cioran would continue to explore his perennial obsessions, with a growing detachment that allies him equally with the Greek sophists, the French moralists, and the oriental sages.

Maar doordat hij met allerhande filosofen in discussie gaat, neemt hij expliciet een positie in binnen een wijsgerige traditie.

A Short History of Decay by Emil M. Cioran

As I alluded to earlier, the language is the only thing that kept me reading. Think – Samuel Beckett and Eugene Ionesco but flavored with full-blown nihilistic humor. Sep 02, Matthew W rated it liked it. It is just amazing how at the last pages you can just see brevisrio streams and his pain within them. Cioran wordt wel eens weggezet als ‘moralist’ of ‘onheilige mysticus’.

Cioran has me convinced by about the first paragraph that breviarip is absurd, God wasted was a complete failure until he created Bach and totally redeemed himself, people who live in monasteries are egotistical because they care more about their own souls than living with the rest of us You have to be relatively unscathed by political decisions to be able to have an opinion like this which is apparent given the type of person this book attracts.


Want to Read saving…. This is the brevlario book of his that I’ve read and it’s even darker than his more youthful and lighthearted Tears and Saints which was really breviarik the kind of b If you think you hate life, or maybe just the world around you this book will make you kick yourself repeatedly for being just too much of a goddamn optimist.

“Sólo el instante es divino infinito irremediable. El instante que uno está viviendo.”

Cioran geeft commentaar, verwerkt gedachten, bekritiseert en dient collega-denkers van antwoord. It’s Nietzsche in a funhouse mirror, Nietzsche hollowed of any substance. Twee jaar later was ‘Een kleine filosofie van verval’ af, niet zonder aanzienlijke moeite. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

Het is eenzelfde principe van onveranderlijkheid, verschillend uitgedrukt in de drie vormen van de universele geeuw. While the writing style is dense and abstruse often bordering on incomprehensible coiran, it does possess a poetic beauty and is eminently quotable.

Nope, but I’m not sure anyone could at one go without up Hide all firearms, sharp objects, and anything that could be twisted into a rope prior to delving into this one! Lo que hay que decir es que siempre se dice demasiado: You really have to be mad to love it.

Het was hier, tijdens de zomer vandat ik besloot om te breken met het Roemeens. I simply cannot take him seriously, and for the reader, such an attitude becomes liberating: Onze drang naar verafgoding, cioarn combinatie met een onvolmaakte God, werpt ons in een afgrond.

Refresh and try again.
