Waarom blijven schrijven in een idioom dat enkel toegankelijk is voor een miniem aantal landgenoten, eigenlijk maar een stuk of twintig? Well, this one took a while for such a slim volume. While I enjoyed his acerbic commentaries on Christianity, on the whole I cannot follow Cioran into the depths icoran such profound nihilism.

To all the people who find this book evocative, powerful, resonant: Says so much with such artistry. La multiplicidad de los discursos, informativos o edificantes, persuasivos, entusiasmados o curiosos, tiene algo de nauseabundo. Cioran verwerkte ook zelf graag citaten in zijn teksten. Cioran wordt wel eens weggezet als ‘moralist’ of ‘onheilige mysticus’. Cioran’s florid prose cuts to the essence of Being, free of all metaphysical vreviario idealistic baggage – offering a dark and disconcerting ciofan, perhaps, but one in which even the greatest cynic can finally find some mode of human agency.

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!


Eerder dan een coherente filosofie stelt Cioran in dit boek het individuele lijden voorop, met het zichzelf vernietigende ‘ik’ als enige kennisprincipe.

Vertaler Pieter Appels heeft die filosofische grondslag duidelijk willen maken met de vertaling van de titel als ‘Een kleine filosofie van verval’.

I had read this book at the library, well Designed, of course, for provoking the Three D’s: Recomendados Los escritores y sus ciudades Disparos y literatura Poemas para combatir la calvicie. But here’s the thing: At times, especially when he’s compellingly observing how heroism is the opposite of depth, I was reminded of the works of Jeff Lint – but that may just have been because I was reading this alongside And Your Point Is?

Cioran constantly mentions what a romantic, idealistic young man he was breviaroi 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.

A Short History of Decay by Emil M. Cioran

You really have to be mad to love it. Even if I disagreed with everything said here it would have gotten 5 stars for its prose alone. Cioran geeft commentaar, verwerkt gedachten, bekritiseert en dient collega-denkers van antwoord. 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: Nu ik de profeet in mijzelf heb gedood, hoe zou ik nog een plaats onder de mensen kunnen hebben?

To survive life you have to get over the bad stuff, because who wants to get over the good stuff?!

And for having sought to be a sage such as ciorna was, I am only a madman among the mad De geschiedenis is een optocht van valse Absoluutheden, een opeenvolging van tempels opgericht omwille van voorwendsels, een vernedering van de geest tegenover het Onwaarschijnlijke.

Breviario de podredumbre Emil Michel Cioran Taurus, p. Passages like this really make me think: Open Preview See a Problem? Hij beschreef zijn vertaalwerk als ‘het eindpunt van een epilepsieaanval’ en de Franse taal vergeleek hij met een dwangbuis. Aug 29, Jay Green rated it it was amazing.

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. Pero sus creencias son deleznables, sus seguridades ilusorias, sus paliativos risibles: Leer a Beckett o a Cioran es reasumir, una y otra vez, la experiencia de la vaciedad.
