The Idiosyncrasies of an Irritable Philosopher – Camil Petrescu [Idiosincraziile unui filosof irascibil – Camil Petrescu]
Professor Ph.D. Anton ADAMUT
I do not know how many people take seriously the philosopher Camil Petrescu! I do not know if many people accept the fact that there is a philosophy of Camil Petrescu! I do know however that the noocrat was blamed without even the most cursory trial, as a matter of fact forced to pay even for the bullet that knocked him down. Too late and randomly it is spoken of the philosophical adventure of Camil. It is certain that he was treasured and still is by great names of local culture and philosophy. I recall, randomly, but not disorderly, a P. P. Negulescu, T. Vianu, G. Călinescu, M. Eliade, M. Sebastian, C. Noica, A. Dumitriu, Al. Paleologu. But in this text I shall not write about the philosopher, but about the man Camil Petrescu with the idiosyncrasies and irascibilities that have always accompanied him.
Keywords: literature, philosophy, novel, criticism, memories, polemic.
