And yet, published as a collection inthis series of aphoristic essays is far from a Jeremiad for a post-Holocaust Europe and a post-atomic world. View all 3 comments. As he aged, Cioran understood the importance of conciseness and to pick his words carefully. Hay muchas clases de risa, pero todas distan de ser igualmente estimables, igualmente sanas: What is false here is so out of touch, criticising it isn’t worth the effort.

Dat Cioran veel meer is dan een gelegenheidsdenker die zich uitdrukt in aforismen, wordt mooi duidelijk gemaakt door het woord ciofan, ook al wordt het dan voorafgegaan door ‘kleine’.

Emil Cioran

Breviario de podredumbre Emil Michel Cioran Taurus, p. Tears and Saints, — all of which are themes that one finds again in his French writings.

To survive life you have to turn yourself into a specimen, to observe yourself. But then again, isn’t writing still a small sign of hope? Bleak, yet I cannot help but laugh. A Short History of Decay is dreck, but it’s beautiful dreck—sick with bits of glitter in it. 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 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.


Leer a Beckett o a Cioran es reasumir, una y otra vez, la experiencia de la vaciedad. Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go. Vroeger had ik een ‘ik’; nu ben ik niet meer dan een object 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.

I am naturally sympathetic towards nihilism, but this isn’t a work of philosophy, it’s the dark inverse of a self-help book full of empty platitudes: I balked pretty hard, like an alpha-male chicken, when I saw immediately, right on the back cover, that the author flew into Romania after fascists took power, to congratulate them.

They become hilarious, a joy to read. Even if you think that the poor are just lazy, do you honestly think they oppose a change in social order? There he wallows, waiting for his absurdly self-aware existence to run its futile course, all the while laughing at, not only us, but at himself as well. It’s a viewpoint I associate with teenagers. Context changes meaning, sure, but not enough to defend this. He says what most of us know in what it seems to me like a scheme sometimes.

If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? Placed at the two extremities of the social ladder, they fear any modification in good and evil: He focuses on such major issues of the twentieth century as human progress, fanaticism, and science. I’d have liked to read further for the comedy factor, since he follows long nihilistic digressions with bizarre, wholly uncharacteristic praise for frivolity. A Short History of Decay is an unbridled celebration of nihilism.

Cioran’s essays on human life basically rest on proving its innate absurdity. La multiplicidad de los discursos, informativos o edificantes, persuasivos, entusiasmados o curiosos, tiene algo de nauseabundo. How Cioran could live with thoughts like these and not end his own life is beyond me, but like a character out of Beckett he continues going on.

To all the people who find this book evocative, powerful, resonant: And it’s true, he does reads like a breviaro adult and not a r What do you get when you mix Diogenes, Heraclitus, Lao zi, the Buddha and La Rochefoucauld in a small piece of coal and crushes it under an infitiny of existential despair and cosmic horror?

Aug 29, Jay Green rated it it was amazing. Vertaler Pieter Appels heeft die filosofische ve duidelijk willen maken met de vertaling van de titel als ‘Een kleine filosofie van verval’. Passages like this really make me think: Refresh and try again. It’s Nietzsche in a funhouse mirror, Nietzsche hollowed of any substance.

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. What do you get when you mix Diogenes, Heraclitus, Lao zi, the Buddha and La Rochefoucauld in a small piece of coal and crushes it under an infitiny of existential despair and cosmic horror?

He sounds like another Hitler-era artist who wants order on his own strange, selfish terms, but I imagine the frivolity would be literally in reading this whole book. Zijn denkbewegingen over het betreurenswaardige lot van de mens ‘de ziekte van het zijn’ komen steeds uit bij heiligen, engelen, martelaren en een immer afwezige God.
