Pero sus creencias son deleznables, sus seguridades ilusorias, sus paliativos risibles: Kiko Rondilla rated it did not like it Oct 21, One for fans of existentialism, absurdism, and anything by Samuel Beckett. Ciorans stijl is wispelturig, niet-systematisch, idiosyncratisch. This is gorgeous gall, beautiful bile, ethereal effluence, translated with a sublime flair. Rein in your palpitations and the course of events slows down; without our ardors, space is ice.

Cioran was a really amazing human being. The hermeneutics of the void via prose poetry. His insights pull no punches and he makes absurdism humourous -which is I think redeems the futility of living from the onslaught of suicidal thoughts that barrage the reader on every page.

Because just look at it: Influenced by the German romantics, by Schopenhauer, Nietzsche and the Lebensphilosophie of Schelling and Bergson, by certain Russian writers, including Chestov, Rozanov, and Dostoyevsky, and by the Romanian poet Eminescu, Cioran wrote lyrical and expansive meditations that were often metaphysical in nature and whose recurrent themes were death, despair, solitude, history, music, saintliness and the mystics cf.

Cioran’s aphoristic musings on the decay of modern society is not easy on the soul, but is made bearable by his beautiful turns of phrase and concise explanations despite the fact that he uses more ellipses than a teenager on facebook chat.

Even if you think that the poor are just lazy, do you honestly think they oppose a change in social order? Apr 19, Greg rated it really liked it Shelves: Thanks for telling us about the problem.

But even aside from being an aphoristic work of philosophy seldom the sort of thing to benefit from being read at speedit’s hard powering through a book which is one long sigh. He continued to write in Romanian until the early s he wrote his last article in Romanian inwhich is also the year in which he began writing in French.

The book is so chock full of bogus, hypocritical notions about reality, and they’re taken to such a level of extremity that one can’t help but laugh at the ridiculousness of it, for the text resembles more the speech of a rambling, mad poet than a dedicated philosopher, since the reader is never given concrete evidence or examples to support the author’s claims, and instead if confronted with a never ending series of fancy analogies.

Onze drang naar verafgoding, in combinatie met een onvolmaakte God, werpt ons in een afgrond. This is the second book of his that I’ve read and it’s even darker than his more youthful and lighthearted Tears and Saints which was really not the kind of book the average person would call uplifting.

Though perhaps what I found most disagreeable in A Short History of Decayis the way that Cioran repeatedly argues against anyone who has any sort of political or moral convictions: Open Preview See a Problem?

For my money, Cioran is the only true heir of Nietzsche; he who presaged not the destruction of systems, but the world after which the systems had already failed themselves – a latterday Diogenes still in search of the honest man.

La respuesta no puede venir de un exterior que las obras de esos autores niegan: Por encima o por debajo de los hombres, quien conoce la mentira de las palabras y su promesa nunca puede volver a contarse entre ellos.
