Cioran et la tentation mystique : expérience mystique et influence des mystiques chrétiens dans les écrits français de Cioran

Abstract : This thesis deals with the expression of a mystique lacking in the presence of God, in the French works of Cioran. The spiritual experience is considered from the works of some Christian mystics. Lucidity leads Cioran to the experience of emptiness. And yet, self-disgust never overcomes a tenacious passion for being, which is the sign of the nostalgia for Unity. It seems to be a perpetual conversion. As he's about to give in to a fearsome nihilism, the mystic way opens up for Cioran. The question is how this experience doesn't lapse into a syncretic mysticism. Cioran considers the ontological question from the Christian anthropology point of view. By expecting a confrontation with God, this experience is more than an anxious introspection. The mystique exceeds the psychology area and concerns epistemology as well. The mystique is the evidence of the limits of philosophy and metaphysic and goes on by means of the act of writing, grappling with the temptation of silence.
