“O Niilista do Século” – Rodrigo MENEZES

São muitas as análises, das superficiais às mais elaboradas, que inscrevem a obra de Cioran sob o signo do niilismo. Um dos capítulos do livro de Franco Volpi, O Niilismo, é dedicado a Cioran e Bataille conjuntamente.[1] Ioan P. Culianu, historiador das religiões romeno, segue a mesma linha interpretativa de Volpi, atribuindo a Cioran um… Continue lendo “O Niilista do Século” – Rodrigo MENEZES

“Will Artificial Intelligence End Human Creativity?” – John MAURIELLO

In view of this evidently inexorable event, the question arises, what remains of the eternal light of the soul once the artificial lights have been turned on?

“A Short History of Authentic Time” – Peter SLOTERDIJK

According to a bon mot of Adolf von Harnack, Gnosticism signifies the acute Hellenization of Christianity. This bon mot would itself remain a profound remark only if one were successful in confirming the hypotheses about the non-Christian origin of Gnosticism.

“Gnosticism as negative psychology” – Peter SLOTERDIJK

In Gnosticism metaphysics is transformed into psychopathology and pneumato-pathology. It deems the arrival of the soul in the world to be a catastrophe of alienation; all life in the dazzling direction of the outward path is, in a fundamental sense, “grieving” – which is the effect of separating from the self. As a critique of… Continue lendo “Gnosticism as negative psychology” – Peter SLOTERDIJK
