The Temptations of Emile Cioran


William Kluback and Michael Finkenthal

The Romanian-born Emile Cioran is one of the most important figures of modern French philosophy and literature. Even though most of his French works have been translated into English, this is the first attempt to produce a comprehensive presentation and appraisal of his work to an English-speaking public. Written in the form of a dialogue between two skeptical minds, this book discusses both the pre-war Romanian and post-war French works of Cioran.
