“To the Nothingnesses Themselves: Husserl’s Influence on Sartre’s Notion of Nothingness” – Simon GUSMAN

Taylor & Francis Online, 16 October, 2017 ABSTRACT: In this article I argue that Sartre’s notions of nothingness and “negatity” are not, as he presents it, primarily reactions to Hegel and Heidegger. Instead, they are a reaction to an ongoing struggle with Husserl’s notion of intentionality and related notions. I do this by comparing the… Continue lendo “To the Nothingnesses Themselves: Husserl’s Influence on Sartre’s Notion of Nothingness” – Simon GUSMAN

“The Benefits of Being a Suicidal Curmudgeon: Emil Cioran on Killing Yourself” – Glenn M. TRUJILLO JR

Southwest Philosophy Review 37(1): 219-228, 2021 Abstract: Emil Cioran offers novel arguments against suicide. He assumes a meaningless world. But in such a world, he argues, suicide and death would be equally as meaningless as life or anything else. Suicide and death are as cumbersome and useless as meaning and life. Yet Cioran also argues… Continue lendo “The Benefits of Being a Suicidal Curmudgeon: Emil Cioran on Killing Yourself” – Glenn M. TRUJILLO JR

“Cioran: Existentialism, Gnosticism, Nihilism” – Ioan P. CULIANU

Existentialism We will not insist on analyzing the relations between existentialism and Gnosticism established by Hans Jonas. I have already done this elsewhere, in detail (Gnosticismo, pp. 119 sq.). Gnosticism and existentialism resemble the phenomenology of the being-in-the-world, which is "pro-iectation" (Geworfenheit), abandonment, forgetfulness, inauthenticity. But while this condition forms, for the Gnostic, only the… Continue lendo “Cioran: Existentialism, Gnosticism, Nihilism” – Ioan P. CULIANU
