Ein Remix-Album und Requiem der besonderen Art: Neun kleine Kompositionen, Miniaturen — ein akustisches Skizzenbuch Sie tauchen an einer Stelle auf und verschwinden an einer anderen wieder. Eingebettet in eine Musik, die ihrerseits Jazzsamples und andere verrauschte Referenzen der musikalischen Vergangenheit in pluckernde Beats und fein knisternde Elektronik einbettet, wirken seine Statements irgendwie beruhigend.

Dieser besonderen Bedeutung der Skepsis gerade in heutiger Zeit widmet sich die Autorin in dem vorliegenden Werk. Sie zeigt spannend und anschaulich zugleich, wie wichtig es ist, skeptisches Denken nicht als Problem zu betrachten, sondern vielmehr als Herausforderung und aktuelle Methode der Philosophie zu begreifen.

When I saw one of his books during my regular wanderings in Amsterdam book peskmista, I bought it immediately. Thus Bitter Syllogisms was my first introduction to the grim and dark but also wonderful and, for those who see it, comical world of Emile Cioran. Bitter SyllogismsI could say one of the most famous and most admired amongst Cioran-fans all over the world – but then again that applies to practically all of his books – was for a few years the only Cioran-book I had.

And that is because Cioran writes so dense, is so engaging and at the same time so exhausting that after having read one chapter of his aphorisms – for that is the literary form he uses in Bitter Syllogisms and most of his other ciorxn – you feel like you have wrestled through several heavy volumes of philosophy.

Cioran coran has said about his style: What I am saying is the result of something, of an interior process. And I give the result, but I am not writing the road and the process leading up to that result.

Instead of publishing three pages, I suppress everything, except the conclusion. Slowly it starts to sink in. And even if you have the ‘aha-erlebnis’ upon the first reading of his aphorisms or one of the short and just as dense chapters of his other works, you want to re-read it again many times to make it your own.

Does that make Cioran your best friend, your spiritual guide in life? Not only is that a question I would have to answer in a negative way, it is also something Cioran himself would abhor. He definitely never intended to be anybody’s guiding light. I don’t want to convince’he said in an interview. If anything, Cioran teases the reader, he challenges, but as such he wants to give the reader something to think about, something that maybe disturbs the reader, that may change his outlook upon things.


A book has to turn everything upside down, put everything into question. Reason why he hasn’t been the subject of much academic approach, but then again that would be another thing he would only agree upon, as he loathed the academic world. Let me give you an example from The trouble with being born. Before, we had the luck not to exist; now we exist, and it is this particle of existence, hence of misfortune, which dreads death.

Particle is not the word, since each of us prefers himself to the universe, at any rate considers himself equal to it’he said in The trouble with being bornin a reaction to the stoics, whom he much admired by the way. There are many times when I come across an aphorism and find myself annoyed. I start accusing Cioran of being a teenager who has never learned the art of growing up. I have given this presentation the title Cioran, comedian or martyr? While reading his books you think all the time: Is this guy for real?

He can’t be THIS negative. When a Parisian lady once heard what titles Cioran had given to his books, she exclaimed: If you read his interviews and then again go back to his books, you discover that there is so much more.

That is to say IF you want to discover this. In circles of philosophers, academics and critics there are just as many people who love him as there are those who can’t stand him. Cioran has always been controversial and he will undoubtedly continue to be considered controversial. But it may by now be quite clear where I stand in this. I hope to be able to give you a little introduction into the work and the world of the man I consider one of the most important thinkers of the 20th century – if not THE most important thinker – and I am not the only one.

CIORAN: el pesimista seductor

Amongst his many admirers is French writer Michel Houellebecq. Cioran could indeed be called an heir of Nietzsche, even though that would be another title he would most strongly reject, in spite of his admiration for the German philosopher.

Nietzsche is always being labelled ‘the philosopher with the hammer’ and as such it wouldn’t be a bad idea to label Cioran seduvtor philosopher with the sledge hammer’.

Not a bad title for a man who said that ‘An aphorism has to be like a smack in the face. I am happy to give you some quotes from his work, but I also think that there are certain recurrent themes in his work, even if it may not be a ‘closed’ philosophical system. But let me first tell you something about his life. His life Cioran was born in in the Transylvanian village of Rasinari as the son of an orthodox priest.

He always refers to the first ten years as the happiest of his life. He loved life amongst the simple peasants, who were mostly illiterate. One of the famous anecdotes that abound, is that he used to play soccer with the skulls he found on the local cemetery. When his father took him away from the village when he was ten years old – he had to go to college in the small city of Sibiu – Cioran felt like he was taken out of paradise.


All of this has left a heavy mark on him as a person and as a writer. As an adolescent he suffered from insomnia, and he has many times acknowledged that this has been very influential on him as a writer. It made him sombre and withdrawn.

His insomnia resulted in his first book in Rumanian, On the Heights of Despairpublished in Clearly the work of an adolescent, it contains all the germs for the thoughts he would elaborate in his later works. The title is a take on news ciorzn on suicide that always start with: Cioran always stresses the relieving effect of writing. Writing is for him a necessity.

He has said both that he would have become a murderer and that he would have committed suicide if he wouldn’t have had the possibility to write. The idea of suicide is a recurring idea in both his books and his interviews.

For Cioran the possibility of suicide, the possibility to end our lives on the moment we select ourselves, independent of some higher might, is a liberating idea that paradoxically prevents many people from actually committing this deed. And he also said many times that without this liberating idea, he might indeed very well have committed suicide. But he also said that many of his readers came to him to tell him they would have committed suicide if they wouldn’t have had Cioran’s books.

About the relieving effect of writing he said in an intreview: X is an asshole. And after a few minutes, you will feel relieved. You detest them less. Cioran wrote for himself, to get rid of his demons. Of course On the heights of despair was embarrassing for the son of an Orthodox priest. His mother once told him: After his mother had said this, he realised that life was a coincidence and as such it was a liberation for him, as he realised that life was meaningless.

We will see further on which mark this left on his work.

Cioran studied philosophy in Bucharest and he graduated on a thesis on Bergson. Later in life he seldom spoke about this and as I know hardly anything about it, I am not getting into this any further.

In he wrote his last book in Rumanian, Tears and Saintsfor me his first really great book. I will come back upon it later when I talk about his thoughts and philosophy.

He convinced the University Board that he needed a grant to continue his studies on Bergson in Paris. In he left Bucharest for Paris. He finally got rid of his insomnia by exhausting himself through making long bicycle rides in the French countryside.

His first book in French appeared in and was rewritten four times pesimiista Gallimard had accepted it.
