This is gorgeous gall, beautiful bile, ethereal effluence, translated with a sublime flair.

Recomendados Los escritores y sus ciudades Disparos y literatura Poemas para combatir la calvicie. Ik heb me van de filosofie afgekeerd op het moment dat het me niet meer lukte bij Kant een menselijke zwakheid, een waarachtig teken van droefheid te ontdekken; lodredumbre Kant niet en bij geen enkele filosoof.

A Short History of Decay

As I alluded to earlier, the language is the only thing that kept me reading. Het fragmentarische uit zich ook in de interpunctie: Want to Read saving…. This is the second book of his that I’ve read and it’s even darker than his more youthful and lighthearted Tears ve 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.

His philosophy is one of absolute futility, in which suicide is the most noble act, and any motion towards civilisation, culture or the pursuit of knowledge is entirely misguided.


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.

So what’s the point to be serious about life? Zoals Cioran aangeeft in de essaybundel ‘Exercices d’admiration’waar hij in het laatste hoofdstukje ‘En relisant Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

A Short History of Decay by Emil M. Cioran

See 1 question about A Short History of Decay…. But it’s precisely through the grandness of his sentiments that Cioran undermines his own plea for universal renunciation.

Yet despite it all, this book was great – beautifully written, darkly amusing in places and interesting – I didn’t agree with all, or most, that Cioran said, but I did get immersed in his world and perceptions.

Passages like this really make me think: I simply cannot take him seriously, and for the reader, such an attitude becomes liberating: Mijn vaderland bestond niet meer, mijn moedertaal ook niet Of course, I did still agree with at least half of it, so that helps.

You really have to be mad to love it. A hymn to the futility of everything – including thinking you’ve gained anything by having noticed the futility of everything – it’s torn between Cioran’s desire to fade away, and his envy for the great monsters of history. I had read this book at the library, well A collection of aphorisms, barely any of which reflect reality, which are soaked in some of the most sublime prose.


Cioran constantly mentions what a romantic, idealistic young man he was – though in “In the Heights of Despair” he seems as nihilistic as always – and how now he has matured, abandoning every trace of active philosophy, abandoning movement and hope. La respuesta no puede venir de un exterior que las obras de esos autores niegan: Jul 10, Bernardo Kaiser rated it really liked it.

De geschiedenis is een optocht van valse Absoluutheden, een opeenvolging van tempels opgericht omwille van voorwendsels, een vernedering van de geest tegenover het Onwaarschijnlijke.

I am naturally sympathetic pldredumbre nihilism, but this isn’t a work of philosophy, it’s the dark inverse of a self-help book full of empty platitudes: Return to Book Page. Because just look at it: A Short History of Decay is dreck, but it’s beautiful dreck—sick with bits of glitter in it. Het was hier, tijdens de zomer vandat ik besloot om te breken met het Roemeens.
