Leitura comparada: “O caso Sartre”, “Sobre um empresário de ideias” – CIORAN

Como o próprio título indica, "Le cas Sartre" é um requisitório contra o mandarim do existencialismo francês, escrito na segunda metade da década de 1940, quando Cioran começava a redigir aquele que seria o seu livro de estreia como escritor de língua francesa: o Précis de décomposition (1949).  "O caso Sartre" seria posteriormente descartado, estando… Continue lendo Leitura comparada: “O caso Sartre”, “Sobre um empresário de ideias” – CIORAN

“Cioran, timpul şi scepticismul” – Mircea LĂZĂRESCU

Simpozion International Cioran, Sibiu-Răşinari, 16-18 mai 2013 Textele lui Cioran sunt greu încadrabile într-o categorie literară sau teoretică. Cultivând eseul, fragmentul, aforismul, maxima, opera lui Cioran exprimă în acelaşi timp un mesaj ideatic coerent, semnificativ pentru sfârşitul modernităţii occidentale. Tematica sa, invocând paradisul şi căderea omului în istorie, pare stranie în secolul XX, amintind cu… Continue lendo “Cioran, timpul şi scepticismul” – Mircea LĂZĂRESCU

“Far right, misogynist, humourless? Why Nietzsche is misunderstood” – Sue PRIDEAUX

The Guardian, 6 October 2018 The German philosopher has been adopted by the alt-right, but he hated antisemitism. He has been misappropriated and misread, argues his biographer Friedrich Nietzsche, Karl Marx and Charles Darwin are the great triumvirate of 19th-century thinkers whose ideas still have huge impact today. Nietzsche was philosophy’s supreme iconoclast; his sayings include “God is dead”… Continue lendo “Far right, misogynist, humourless? Why Nietzsche is misunderstood” – Sue PRIDEAUX

“Anticlericalism and Atheism” – Richard RORTY

Some day, intellectual historians may remark that the twentieth century was the one in which the philosophy professors began to stop asking bad questions—questions like “What really exists?” “What are the scope and limits of human knowledge?” and “How does language hook up with reality?” These questions assume that philosophy can be done ahistorically. They… Continue lendo “Anticlericalism and Atheism” – Richard RORTY

“Twilight of the Gods” – Peter SLOTERDIJK

What should we say to the antimodernist hysteria that has been blazing for centuries, now that it alleges that the human being would like to “become like God”? And if the answer were that, according to basic Christian doctrine, God wanted to become human, should anyone be surprised then that humans’ certainty of their distinguished… Continue lendo “Twilight of the Gods” – Peter SLOTERDIJK

O ponto de partida do pensamento de Nishitani Pretendo esclarecer o fundamento daquilo que penso ser o ponto de partida do pensamento presente nas duas obras centrais de Keiji Nishitani (1900-1990), a saber, Shukyo to wa nani ka (O que é a religião) (Nishitani, 1961) e Zen no tachiba (O ponto de vista do Zen)… Continue lendo “O pensamento de Nishitani e o Budismo” – Hisao MATSUMARU

Alexander Dugin: Extreme Thought on Apocalypticism and Heidegger?

Dr. Rinaldi's Horror Cabinet

alexander-dugin

Right off the bat: I do not share what I describe below in any form or fashion, but we have to take a peek into the dark side of strangeness and keep abreast of the fringes that seem to be insinuating themselves into politics abroad and at home.

For those that have kept abreast of the Utlra-Right mutations and divigations from NRx to the New Right of European thought there is an interview with the Russian apocalypse, Alexander Dugin on Martin Heidegger:

Dugin has the ear of Putin, and one is almost reminded of the Old Csar of the Russian Empire and Grigori Rasputin. Dugin has just enough of the political witchcraft of Western conceptuality to make him dangerous. He is he tells us neither of the Right or the Left, and against all forms of Modernity as he perceives it: both liberal and communist. He’s an apocalyptic Christian…
