A Short History of Decay by Emil M. Cioran

Want to Read Currently Reading Read. But he had to wear the cross of heterosexuality in a hetero normative world. The hermeneutics of the void via prose poetry. Rein in your palpitations and the course of events slows down; without our ardors, space is ice. He does read like someone who went to Paris for inspiration, stayed fo the nightlife, only to regress to cynicism when certainty suits him.

First of all you can never find the harmony. Dat Cioran veel meer is dan een gelegenheidsdenker die zich uitdrukt in aforismen, wordt mooi duidelijk gemaakt door het woord ‘filosofie’, ook al wordt het dan voorafgegaan door ‘kleine’. Hay muchas clases de risa, pero todas distan de ser igualmente estimables, igualmente sanas: Granted, these are aphorisms, and expecting rigorous deductive reasoning out of them is somewhat misguided—but that doesn’t stop the fact that so much of what is written here is utterly vacuous despite how prettily it is dressed up.


Ciorans stijl is wispelturig, niet-systematisch, idiosyncratisch.

Viorica-valeria rated it did not like it Sep 19, 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: Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

Maar doordat hij met allerhande filosofen in discussie gaat, neemt hij expliciet een positie in binnen een wijsgerige traditie. 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: Maria rated it did not like it Aug 11, 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.

Nov 28, sologdin rated it did not like it Shelves: Zelfs het einde van Socrates heeft niets tragisch: A series of epigrammatic reflections on how things fall apart.

Vertaler Pieter Appels heeft die filosofische grondslag duidelijk willen maken met de vertaling van de titel als ‘Een kleine filosofie van verval’. Ciorans melancholie is religieus van aard, maar nooit zoekt hij aansluiting bij een doordeweekse godsdienstige strekking: Tears and Saints, — all of which are themes that one finds again in his French writings. A collection of emi, barely any of which reflect reality, which are soaked in some of the most sublime prose.

In diezelfde periode waagde Cioran zich ook aan vertalingen van Benjamin Constant, Chamfort, Engelse romantische dichters en enkele Franse brievenschrijfsters uit de achttiende eeuw. He says himself that poetry is a grander work than philosophy, and ultimately what he’s achieved here is closer to the former than the latter.


This is gorgeous gall, beautiful bile, ethereal effluence, translated with a sublime flair. Open Preview See a Problem?

Context changes meaning, sure, but not enough to defend this. It is a very rare thing that a philosopher can write well se. Cioran’s aphorisms are an absolute tour-de-force of the form. Tania Aldrete rated it did not like it Jan 26, Did I finish the book?

Hide all firearms, sharp objects, and anything that could be twisted into a rope prior to delving into this one! I honestly would not recommend reading this to anyone suffering from a serious form of depression.

We can see the glimmer of progress and even hope if we squint hard enough. Though I suppose dressing it up in the language of ‘mortality’ does make it seem d poignant and less trite.

It is because we are dressed that we entertain immortality: I had read this book at the library, well Read Hume if you want something substantively destructive, Kierkegaard for something substantively upbuilding. After Nietzsche finishes philosophizing with his hammer, tearing down all of our illusions, he provides us with the tools to begin building anew. See 1 question about A Short History of Decay….
