It’s Nietzsche in a funhouse mirror, Nietzsche hollowed of any substance.

Placed at the two extremities of the social ladder, they fear any modification in good and evil: Martin rated it did not like it Dec 07, This is the second book of his that I’ve read and it’s even darker than his more youthful and lighthearted Tears and Saints which was really not the kind of b If you think you hate life, or maybe just the world around you this book will make you kick yourself repeatedly for being just too much of nreviario goddamn optimist.

Zelfs wanneer hij zich verwijdert van de religie, blijft de mens eraan onderworpen; zich uitputtend in het bedenken van schijngoden, maakt hij ze zich koortsachtig tot de zijne: Aan de hand van talrijke quotes en verwijzingen spint hij een strak web van intertekstualiteit, zonder dat hierdoor de cilran in het gedrang komt.

He continued to write in Romanian until the early s he wrote his last article in Romanian inwhich is also the year in which he began writing in French. How Cioran could live with thoughts like these and not end his own life is beyond me, but like a character out of Beckett he continues going on.
