In existographies, Emil Cioran (1911-1995) was a Romanian-born French existentialist atheism philosopher, who believed that existence and its works, e.g. his two-dozen plus books, was futile and meaningless; he digressed on the paradoxes of this view, in respect to "accidents", nihilism, pessimism.

“I'm simply an accident. Why take it all so seriously?”
— Emil Cioran (c.1950), reflection his mother telling him (c.1935) that if she had known he was going to be so unhappy she would have aborted him[1]

Cioran read the works of Lev Shestov (1866-1938), Kant, Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, and Hegel.
