    Another deluge of Cioranosophy from the Romanian's mature period; perpetually ensconced in his hatefully beloved Paris and letting the fiery currents of a raging consciousness pour forth at propitious moments to be captured and imprisoned upon the page by means of the rigid strictures of the French language a tongue whose very alienating syntax seemed to accommodate itself so well to the task of expressing this writer's brand of tortured genius The six essays contained within reflect Cioran's world in 1960 when the re ordering of the Soviet Union after the death of Stalin—and its growing acclimatization with the West—had skewed slightly the view from the Left Bank Though by this point the nihilognostic firebrand could admit his growing appreciation for the comfortable and expansive liberties of democracy he still recognized these trappings as inherently vitiating and self destructive; similarly though the awareness of the terrible savageries of Stalin and Hitler were then at perhaps their highest point Cioran cannot help but confess his attraction to their wild and demoniac excesses as being of that spiritual darkness that was forever enjoined with the same deep springs from which sprang all of man's creative and artistic powers It is within these depths that the self may find the eternal present the absolute timelessness from which it was sundered by History and its bifurcated enablers action and consciousness—and which is erroneously sought for in visions of utopia and apocalypseThroughout the entirety the invigorating energies of political cultural and spiritual barbarism are compared and contrasted praised and reviled against the sedentary acmes and enervating lullabies of democratic civilization History and Utopia thus is an exercise in juxtaposition and contradiction—like all of Cioran's work—undertaken amidst the untamed extremes where he so fervently loved to let loose his fertile imagination; but—again as with all that he drew forth from his own inner maelstrom and enchained in words—it's the breathtakingly clear truths and searingly honest phrases that emerge from the storm and the sheer lunar beauty of their expression that makes them so worthwhile

    As they are the people endure their ordeals sometimes solicit them and rebel against them only to rush into new ones horrible than the old Revolution being their one luxury they fling themselves into it not so much to derive certain benefits from it or to improve their lot as to acuire for themselves too the right to insolence an advantage which consoles them for their habitual setbacks but which they immediately lose once the privileges of chaos are abolished Learning from the Tyrants


  3. Wilfredo Rodríguez Dotti Wilfredo Rodríguez Dotti says:

    In this book Cioran uestions history as the only valid account of reality demystifying Progress as the reason of why so much viciousness has been committed wondering about the meaning of the utopias that enable the validity of institutions He points out the inherent paradoxes of the human being and society and warns us against the illusions in which we usually fall on ourselves in relation to our participation in History and its Becoming

    So after finishing this book I found myself in a state that was not similar to any other time I had finished reading a Cioran book I wasn't disappointed per se but I wasn't in that terror stricken grief I wasn't emotionally savaged by elouent and fierce writing that echoes a metaphysics than assumes one nor was I feeling all consuming worship for the veracity of his negation his propensity for perfect encapsulating an uncanny valley of literature whether one should read it laughing or weeping is never certain In History and Utopia however I just couldn't say I had as much reverence for the philosophical rigor The dreadfully gripping prose is enduring but it must have a beyond that For once Cioran is simply too limited by his existential position and his desire for extremity to produce a truly great historical metaphysics but I have explored only the surface of his work so with luck I'll see him evolve by his later writings


  5. Dick Dick says:

    By sanctifying History in order to discredit God Marxism has merely rendered Him peculiar and haunting You can stifle every impulse in humanity except the need for an Absolute which will survive the destruction of temples and even the disappearance of religion on earth Russia and the Virus of Liberty pg 25Wow History and Utopia is truly blowing my mind right now I think I described it as a mind orgasm last night but I was fresh off the dank and my descriptive capacities were severely impaired by the stupefying psychotropic in combination with the stunning content Dark pithy isomorphic resonant—concise illustrious historical hallucinations

    Amazing essays Odyssey Of Rancor alone is worth the cost of this book

    I suppose there are better books to read to try to understand the Romanian mind Cioran begins this book with the following words From that country which was ours and now is no one's This writing about utopia is the narrative of a nightmare Nothing cozy or comforting I was reading this at the same time as Dracula to try to get a sense or an impression of Cioran's experience Born beyond the Carpathians you could not know the Hungarian policeman terror of my Transylvanian childhood Peoples much than individuals inspire contradictory sentiments; we love and loathe them at the same time; objects of attachment and of aversion they do not deserve our harboring in their behalf a specific passion 9 I could go on and on Peoples dream of utopia They make it up They fill the void Freedoms prosper only in a sick body politic tolerance and impotence are synonyms This is patent in politics as everywhere elseIn the course of history freedom occupies no instants than ecstasy in the life of a mystic 13The book reads like aphorisms Some you love Some you hate But he always makes you think Schisms and heresies are nationalisms in disguise led me to realize how America is one big melting pot of schisms and heresies that is the particularity of its own national heritage That is genius The book begins and ends with a great deal of Dostoyevsky You could almost say that Dostoyevsky is the hero of this story I don't think he has a single criticism of anything Dostoyevsky has to say And yet it is so critical of nationalisms and there are few people nationalistic than Dostoyevsky He believed whole heartedly in a utopic Russia but it was a critiue from the inside The other hero of this book is Dürer especially his Four Horseman of the Apocalypse I could spend a lifetime in Dürer's works But this version of tyrants of friendship of utopia is filled with sentences like these What they friends secretly long for is our collapse our humiliation and our ruin 46 Reading this I think of the phenomenon of facebook When we see happy families happy couples happy children people getting married or engaged we want to puke Why is it that they have it so good? This is Cioran's spite This is his self flagellating kindness so Nietzschean to the n th degree Precisely the opposite of American optimism pull one up by the bootstraps sentimentalism We become good natured we become good only by destroying the best of our nature only by submitting our body to the discipline of anemia and our mind to that of oblivion As long as we preserve even a trace of memory forgiveness comes down to a struggle with out instincts an aggression against our own ego 60 nature has made us opaue to ourselves subject to a blindness which generates and rules the world 62 Philosophers like poets like everyone who has something to say are pitiless 69 you get the idea However all in the name of utopia ie anti Manicheanism what humans nationalities reason strives for is status uo hostile to anomaly to deformity to irregularity it tends to the affirmation of the homogeneous of the typical of repetition and orthodoxyUtopia is a mixture of childish rationalism and secularized angelism 86 7 There is no way to sum up such a book no common thread no easy formulation or analytic argument but I've sure tried

    Simly breathtakingWritten in a brilliant way yet understandable With all the heavy ideas about politics and human's obsession with history this book is certainly worth reading Genius As always


  9. Guenter Guenter says:

    A philosopher of paradox par excellence uite electrifying in the same category as a Nietzsche Bataille or Unamuno uotes the precariousness of liberalism a defiance of our instinctswe know ourselves only from the moment when we begin to failwe emerge from torpor enlivened wheneverwe become aware of our role as destroyersthe incompatibility between action and self knowledge seems to have escaped Socratesman sic prefers to wallow in fear than to face the anguish of being himselfevery democrat is an operatta tyrantA world without tyrants would be as boring as a zoo without lions and tigersKnowledge having stimulated our appetite for power will lead us to our ruinAmbition is a drug that makes its addicts madmen


  10. Robbie Gregory Frantz Robbie Gregory Frantz says:

    Highly recommendVirtually every page has a sentence or two worth pondering It is one the best books I have read recently and I will read of Cioran It seems pessimistic but I am loving my life and this book is like a great musical performance I will never relive but is still gentle on my mind
