READ Écartèlement REVIEW í Écartèlement Emil M. Cioran Ð 1 REVIEW Trebuie sa fie o primejdie“Cior. Ruler of the kingdom of ghosts and puppets Emil Cioran a Romanian essayist and philosopher is a master of the savage aphorism and undisputed king of the nihilists His philosophy pushes well beyond the limits of existential humanism which suggests we can find if not meaning at least absolutes by weighing our actions and behaviors against a universal means test and into a kind of pessimistic acceptance that life is short brutal and pointless Moreover he thinks the point of it all is to truly be and truly being reuires suffering and despair and uiet contemplation and stoicism to jolt us out of our simple mindless existence Drawn and uartered is a collection of very short essays and aphorism published in 1979 that aims both barrels of his uniue pessimism at society culture and the lies we tell ourselves to avoid confronting the truth that outside of despair life is meaningless and we are doomed to die and degrade into nothingness I find something perversely joyful and reaffirming in his skepticism his nihilism and the unwavering sense of gloomy torment that shrouds his writing He s certainly not a fan of organized religion as a source of meaning The ancient world must have been terribly afflicted to need so crude an antidote as the one Christianity was to administerAnd the early Christians so greedy for the worst To their intense disappointment the worst did not occur He seemed to anticipate our modern world we now know that the Future is compatible with the atrocious that it even leads there or at least that it gives rise to prosperity and horror with eual facility And it is legitimate to wonder if humanity as it is would not be better off eliminating itself now rather than fading and foundering in expectation exposing itself to an era of agony in which it would risk losing all ambition even the ambition to vanish Ouch And this seems almost eerily accurate for today s always connected screen gazing world of noisy clamoring narcissists The disappearance of silence must be counted among the harbingers of the end It is no longer on account of its shamelessness or its debauchery that today s Babylon the Great deserves to fall but because of its racket and its noise the stridency of its hardware and of the desperate types who cannot manage to uiet down I m pretty sure he didn t have many friends There is no one whose death I have not longed for at one moment or another I totally get thisAnd if he did have any friends they didn t invite him over much I shall be reconciled with myself only when I accept death the way one accepts an invitation to a dinner with amused distaste I love the sense of indignity of his bruised intellectual ego in this line Death what a dishonor To become suddenly an object This little jewel perfectly captures his belief that humans are forever mistaking simple existence for exceptionalism If the waves began to reflect they would suppose that they were advancing that they had a goal that they were making progress that they were working for the Sea s good and they would not fail to elaborate a philosophy as stupid as their zeal This is one of those rare books that provides deep emotional and intellectual sustenance and opens up new avenues of thought with every new reading I ended up highlighting practically all of it Especially this line A book should open old wounds even inflict new ones A book should be a danger Rest easy Cioran Drawn and uartered is a danger indeed 寵妻如令4 zeal This is one of those rare books that provides deep emotional and intellectual sustenance and opens up new avenues of thought with every new reading I ended up highlighting practically all of it Especially this line A book should open old wounds even inflict new ones A book should be a danger Rest easy Cioran Drawn and uartered is a danger indeed

READ Écartèlement REVIEW í Écartèlement Emil M. Cioran Ð 1 REVIEW „O carte trebuie sa adanceasca. The End of the End Drawn and uartered begins with an account of the Gnostic myth of the origin of mankind Originally part of the heavenly host human beings were unable to make up their minds whether to join the battle of the angels for or against God For this indecision we were banished to earth The essential feature of our existence here is its lack of meaning an appropriate punishment indeed which we constantly attempt to escape by inventing stories like the Gnostic mythThis truth of no truth is the ultimate truth as it were Our only choice is between irrespirable truths and salutary frauds We must hide from the truth in order to exist at all This is an inhuman truth one that is both inhumane and beyond the ability of our species to comprehend it So we do our best to avoid it The principal tool of our self delusion is history Without history we are already in what theologians call the eschaton the end times History is the obstacle to ultimate revelation Francis Fukuyama was right therefore when he declared the End of History in 1992 but not in the sense he imagined Cioran anticipated his point and radicalized it long before Fukuyama had made it Henceforth there will be no events they will exclaim in 1979 Fukuyama was referring to the inevitability of democratic capitalism as the future of the political world Given subseuent events Fukuyama was merely guilty of wishful thinking Cioran got it right it is when a political system looks most permanent that it is most vulnerable to being swept away This is the truth hiding in Fukuyama s errorThis is what the eschaton looks like We inhabit it We have always lived in it but have taught ourselves not to notice This is an error whose truth we cannot conceive In the midst of the end we are unable to appreciate it for what it is the absence of any meaning we have been trying incessantly to impose upon the world There is nothing beyond this Even the end has no meaning The truth is history does not uite lack essence since it is the essence of deception key to all that blinds us all that helps us live in time For Cioran history is the rush toward a future where nothing ever becomes again His suggestion is that we stop rushing we have arrived
