At the very first glance, Emil Cioran's philosophy seems utterly and unequivocally pessimistic but as often turns out, things are not exactly what they appear to be.
His writings, or at least a significant part of them, resemble more extended aphorisms rather than typical, consistent philosophical treatises; and that is why they sometimes create an illusion of incoherence or even contradiction. Not until a very careful reading of his books can we truly see that what initially appeared to be chao At the very first glance, Emil Cioran's philosophy seems utterly and unequivocally pessimistic but as often turns out, things are not exactly what they appear to be.
Not until a very careful reading of his books can we truly see that what initially appeared to be chaotic, an ad rem contradiction, constitutes, in fact, an ad hominem counterweigh that, in Nietzsche's own words, comes from a constant becoming, which is deeply rooted in man's dualist nature. In so far as his philosophy, Cioran is clearly under influence of gnostic thought. He postulates a dualism between two co-equal principles, the good and the bad, that try to combat each other. He invokes a figure of the Demiurge, who in gnostic cosmology is said to have made the physical world, full of pain and misery.
Cioran's belief in pre-existence of souls is also reminiscent of Gnosticism. Cioran's attitude towards life or perhaps revealing itself in rebellion against it is highly individuated. In religion, he says, every man loses themselves; their very constituent substance becomes null and void: and in the name of what? An even bigger illusion than that of human existence? In the latter case at least, the meaning of life is imposed upon us in a form of suffering, which turns out to be an originative force.
We struggle throughout existence and in pursuit of alleviating the pain, we become creative. The world as we see it is a product — or maybe just a simple accident — of human autocreation.
And just like the life itself, it's extremely existentialized. Cioran even goes so far as to say that the Universe is just a pretext for pumping blood, it's a heart's autosuggestion. The invention of Christianity is portrayed by Cioran as something that at first could be called a crime against the human nature.
We have renounced our-selves and the life-giving sunrays of happiness. Instead, we jumped off the cliff, and in the process lost the "I" in favour of "us". We don't see cheerful nymphs anymore and with eyes full of tears we stare at a nail-pierced skeleton. Under the sunlight, we were sentenced to freedom but chose to reject it.
Here lies a paradox of human existence apart from an obvious paradox per se — strongly stressed by Cioran: Even though a man rejects the happiness and acts against the grain, it is the misery — a product of renunciation of the revitalizing sunrays — that constitutes the essence of life.
A man, then, by rebelling against his very nature, achieves its completeness. In his book, Cioran expresses his wish to immortalize a man; this is the only thing that seems to be of any value to him.
He would like to perform an act of mundane divinization of the mankind. His anguish is caused in part by the fact that it can't be done. Instead, every man has an opportunity to self-discover themselves.
The New lies only within us, says the philosopher, granting us a special privilege of uniqueness. Is anything positive in such philosophy? Cioran shows that we have to accept our existence and that in every miserable place we can find hope, if we're only willing to seek for it.
He encourages looking for every little event that can sweeten our earthly existence. With this regard, Cioran appears to us not as one of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the Bearer of Bad News, but rather as a humanist trying to deliver the mankind here on Earth. Although we seem to have rejected it, the philosopher gives a ray of sunlight.
Through the dark clouds of nihilism, it shines through, signalling a hope for all of us. Pointless blank lyrics, shallow, yet mimicking profoundness. And, like in the story, most congregate to be amazed by the emperor's new clothes. Wise Book :D. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

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.
Tears and Saints, — all of which are themes that one finds again in his French writings. After spending two years in Germany, Cioran arrived in Paris in He continued to write in Romanian until the early s he wrote his last article in Romanian in , which is also the year in which he began writing in French.
He then began writing in French a book that, thanks to numerous intensive revisions, would eventually become the impressive 'A Short History of Decay' -- the first of a series of ten books in which Cioran would continue to explore his perennial obsessions, with a growing detachment that allies him equally with the Greek sophists, the French moralists, and the oriental sages.
Denied the right to return to Romania during the years of the communist regime, and attracting international attention only late in his career, Cioran died in Paris in Books by Emil M.
