    Le mauvais démiurge (PDF) review ¸ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Emil M. Cioran characters Le mauvais démiurge by Michael SchapiraIs Emil Cioran an author to be feared? Is his writing dangerous in some way that should for example prevent me from including his aphorisms at the end of group emails? Is this kind of uestion ridiculous to even ask nowadays when the appropriate uestion would be whether it is possible to take Cioran or any writer for that matter seriously enough to feel his threat? I would have thought not had a classmate not rai

characters Le mauvais démiurge Emil M. Cioran ☆ 7 Free read review ¸ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Emil M. Cioran „Nimic nu va putea sa mi scoata din minte ca lumea asta e fructul unui zeu. EM Corian the Romanian Philosopher is perhaps the most pessimistic writer who lures the reader with his iconoclastic thoughts about everything life Gods religion society and culture His writings is like that of someone possessed subversive demoniacal anti inspirational feverish and finally enchanting This book is replete with so many lyrical aphorisms that one stays excited and wonder whether is it is a rare combo of art and philosophy Yet many of his aphorisms like that of epitaphs aim for timelessness He is like a mad man who seeks objectivity such is Cioran s self contradictory assessment and one can sense his delirious fervor in all his books How can one resist laughing and at the same time admiring on a famous uote like Reality gives me asthma In his lifetime Cioran who later chose to write his works in French was acclaimed by St John Perse as the greatest French writer to honor our language since the death of Paul Val ry a master of French prose and a modern Socrates and the most distinguished figure in the tradition of Kierkegaard Nietzsche and Wittgenstein Susan Sontag When he died in Paris in 1995 he was honored with a standing ovation in the Assembl e Nationale that described him as one of the greatest French philosophers of the 20th centuryThe book The New Gods beautifully translated by Richard Howard explores humanity s attachment to gods death fear and infirmity in essays that vary widely in form and approach The very first line in the chapter Demiurge itself reflects Cioran s deepening pessimism about man s capacity to do anything good With the exception of some aberrant cases man does not incline to the good what god would impel him to do so Man must vanuish himself must do himself violence in order to perform the slightest action untainted by evil He then makes a challenging statement that our Lord had no hand in creation It is difficult it is impossible to believe that the Good Lord Our Father had a hand in the scandal of creation Everything suggests that He took no part in it that it proceeds from a god without scruples a feculent god Goodness does not create lacking imagination it takes imagination to put together a world however botched At the very least there must be a mixture of good and evil in order to produce an action or a work Creation is in fact a fault man s famous sin thereby appearing as a minor version of a much graver one What are we guilty of except of having followed or less slavishly the Creator s example Easy to recognize in ourselves the fatality which was His not for nothing have we issued from the hands of a wicked and woebegone god a god accursed In the next chapter New Gods he says that Man can breathe only in the shadow of eroded divinities In his opinion The beginnings of a religion like the beginnings of anything are always suspect They alone though possess some reality they alone are true true and abominable Cioran lashes trenchantly against Christianity s early coercion for conversion But what sort of frenzy was it in which the citizen participated when he became a convert Not so well prepared as the others he possessed but one recourse to hate himself Without this deviation of hatred at first atypical subseuently contagious Christianity would have remained no than a sect limited to a foreign clientele actually capable of no than painlessly trading in the old gods for a nailed corpse Cioran though a Christian is tolerant to Judaism and uotes the Roman Emperor Julian Judaism regarded them all as false except one its own Their only error Julian says of the Jews is that even as they seek to satisfy their god they do not serve the others at the same time Yet he praises them for their repugnance to follow the fashion with regard to religion I shun innovation in all things and especially in that which concerns the gods an admission which has discredited him and which is used to brand him as a reactionary But what progress one wonders does Christianity represent in relation to paganism There is no ualitative leap from one god to another nor from one civilization to another any than from one language to another In Paleontology Cioran describes a visit to a Natural History museum I think it must be the one in London as he speaks of Minerals section as well finding the relatively pedestrian destination rife with decay death and human weakness The unwanted attention given to skeletons makes him nervous He writes Nowhere is one better served with respect to the past Here the possible seems inconceivable or cracked One gets the impression that the flesh was eclipsed upon its advent that in fact it never existed at all that it could not have been fastened to bones so stately so imbued with themselves The flesh appears as an imposture a fraud a disguise which masks nothing Was this all it was And if it is worth no how does it manage to inspire me with repulsion or with terror The chapter on Encounters with Suicides is fascinating for its surreal meditation Cioran occupies a position of extreme solitude in French intellectual life Like his fellow Romanian the playwright Eugene Ionesco who also lives in Paris he is fascinated by death although Mr Ionesco flees it in a panic while MrCioran woos it with honeyed words and knowing smiles Cioran explores suicide in impressionistic bursts and think of suicide as the abyss without vertigo He finds in suicide the intoxication of feeling pulverized by your own consciousness and yet without the notion of suicide one would kill oneself on the spot We are jolted when he says Whoever hasn t died young deserves death He is seduced by the possibility of conceiving a thought just one but one that would tear the universe to pieces But it is the empty mind the psyche detached from all idols that liberates a triumphal stupor Health consists in exercise and vacuity in muscles and meditation in no case in thought But we must beware void s mimic Nothingness Like Nietzsche Cioran writes ironically poetically of death and drive Terrifying happiness Veins in which thousands of planets distend He is not without humor Fear of an imminent collapse of the brain counts for a great deal in the need to prayThe last section Strangled Thoughts is one where Cioran is at his best in the form of the aphorism I wish to uote liberally from this section as well as some of the preceding ones to give an impression about the treasure trove of ideas the book contains At this very moment almost everywhere thousands and thousands are dying while clutching my pen I vainly search for a word to annotate their agonyEach moment s tug of war between nostalgia for the deluge and intoxication with routineWhat is called strength of mind is the courage not to imagine our fate otherwiseFirst duty on getting up in the morning to blush for yourselfRefinement is the sign of deficient vitality in art in love and in everythingEndless brooding over a uestion undermines you as much as a dull painEach being is a broken hymn The only man who knows what it feels like to be accursed is the man who knows he would have that feeling in the middle of paradise Everything in the end comes down to desire or to the absence of desire The rest is nuanceSickness gives flavor to want it intensifies it picks up povertyThere is only one sign that indicates we have understood everything tears without cause What they ask you for is actions proofs works and all you can produce are transformed tearsWhat is commonly called being expressive is being prolixOn the spiritual level all pain is an opportunity on the spiritual level aloneThe only true solitude is where we brood upon the urgency of a prayer a prayer posterior to God and to faith itselfFrivolous disconnected an amateur at everything I shall have known thoroughly only the disadvantage of having been bornWe would not be interested in human beings if we did not have the hope of someday meeting someone worse off than ourselvesSuicide is a sudden accomplishment a lightning like deliverance it is nirvana by violenceSo simple a fact as looking at a knife and realizing that it depends only on yourself to make a certain use of it gives you a sensation of sovereignty which can turn to megalomaniaSleep would be good for something if each time we dropped off we tried to see ourselves die after a few years training death would lose all its prestige and would seem no than a formality or a pinprickTo look for a meaning in anything is less the act of a naif than of a masochistEat nothing you have not sown and harvested with your own hand this recommendation of Vedic wisdom is so legitimate and so convincing that in one s rage over being unable to abide by it one would like to let oneself starve to deathSo long as you envy another s success even if it is a god s you are a vile slave like everyone elseWe may be sure that the twenty first century advanced than ours will regard Hitler and Stalin as choirboysDeath is the aroma of existence Death alone lends savor to the moments alone combats their insipidity We owe death almost everything This debt of recognition which we now and then consent to pay is what is most comforting here on earthWisdom disguises our wounds it teaches us how to bleed in secretEverything blurs and fades in human beings except the look in their eyes and the voice without these we could recognize no one after a few yearsNothing gives us a better conscience than to fall asleep with the clear view of one of our defects which till then we hadn t dared admit we hadn t even suspectedSpeech and silence We feel safer with a madman who talks than with one who cannot open his mouthAwakening is independent of intellectual capacities a genius can be a dunce spiritually speaking Moreover knowledge as such gets one no further An illiterate can possess the eye of understanding and thereby find himself above and beyond any scholarI love Cioran s howling pessimism and he teaches us to doubt than devour everything that we come across in life He is a rare distillation of all the philosophers Pascal Montaigne La Rochefoucauld and Schopenhauer who preceded him The New Gods reaffirms Cioran s belief in lucid despair and his own signature mixture of pessimism and scepticism in language that never fails to be a pleasure Let me conclude with his lovely message For a man to whom freedom and vertigo are euivalent a faith wherever it comes from even if it were antireligious is a salutary shackle a desired a dreamed of chain whose function will be to constrain curiosity and fever to suspend the anguish of the indefinite I must frame this somewhere
