Of course technically he died over years ago and I could just start over at the beginning It is not an easy read and it took me a long time to get through it but I feel my life a little enriched because I was able to get to know this sad but insightful man through his journals.

As all of my facebook friends know, as Henri and I traveled together on the El everyday, I sometimes found his quotes so I have completed my journey with Henri. As all of my facebook friends know, as Henri and I traveled together on the El everyday, I sometimes found his quotes so moving that I just had to share; Pithy tidbits as relevant now as they were then.

There are some challenges. He does have quite a few critiques of his contemporary writers mostly Genevese, French and German and most of whom I have never heard of and obviously have not read. I skimmed those entries. And Henri and I do not always see eye to eye about everything, but he is a thoughtful and gentle philosopher so his antiquated ideas about women and democracy, I shrugged them off.

He did die in Finally he likes to discuss his faith and religion quite a bit and although I am not a believer he continues even on this topic to be a philosopher so I wasn't put off by the expression of his feelings about how he believed how religion and faith improved his life and lives of others.

But a good book. Let yourself read it really slowly and and you will enjoy it. Deeply religious, but ultimately skeptical; aristocratic in spirit, but grudgingly realistic to know that democracy is the only way forward for a society; admiring of science, but simultaneously recognizing the dangers of positivism; and a lifelong conservative Protestant who as he got older began to embrace socialist and Buddhist thinking, and someone who, in his own way, seemed to be lighting the path for the future of French thought, a first sort of ur-existentialist emerging from the cave.

And over the course of this journal, we see the arc of a man whose life is lonely, damaged, deeply romantic but necessarily pragmatic, over the course of a remarkable century. I've never read anything like it. Jul 14, Larry Hansen rated it it was amazing Shelves: consciousness-mind-body , religious. This is a very enjoyable read if you are one who likes to examine life.

Also, a slow read. The journal was filled with insightful aphorisms about truth, society, and life in general. Amiel was torn between living an introverted, mystical-philosophical life and a outward, productive one.

He chose the former but seemed guilt-ridden for not pursuing the latter. His thought was religious and, fortunately, in a very open-minded way as he talked about following God's will in a Christian way but still d This is a very enjoyable read if you are one who likes to examine life. His thought was religious and, fortunately, in a very open-minded way as he talked about following God's will in a Christian way but still discussed the Eastern perspective as if it had valid meaning to him.

My edition was translated by Mary A. Ward with no publication date. The journal runs from to , a few months before Henri's death. Ward did not include the mundane entries but intentionally used only his philosophic musings which I thought was a good move. It was apparently translated back in the time when anyone smart enough to read seriously was expected to speak culturally elite French.

There were numerous untranslated passages in French and several in German, Spanish and Latin. I would recommend an edition that at least footnotes the translations. Reading this book took months, yet it only has pages! Why did it take so long? Well, I had to stop after almost every journal entry and allow myself some reflection time. He taught philosophy and aesthetics in the mids. His journal covers literature hates Victor Hugo , music, religion, ethics, weather, educational practices,child rearing, friendship, death, Facebook stalking and so much more.

Despite the age of the book, it remains relevant. I will probably re-read it, or at least the Reading this book took months, yet it only has pages! I will probably re-read it, or at least the hundreds of quotes in my Kindle clippings folder. An example: January 23, [He is slowly dying from bronchitis and asthma.

But there is nothing to prevent us from opening our solitude to God. And so what was an austere monologue becomes dialogue, reluctance becomes docility, renunciation passes into peace, and the sense of painful defeat is lost in a sense of recovered liberty. Mar 29, Sluggo rated it it was amazing. This man had so many interesting things to say about such a WIDE variety of subjects, he was truly amazing.

Unfortunately this was the "woe is me" bane of his life- he despaired that he was never able to let himself focus on ONE thing, and so never gained the fame and wealth he could have had. Thank God he didn't. This book was an international best-seller at the time it was published, after his death. Now, of course, you can't find it in a library. View 1 comment.

A timeless meditation on life, from the highest peaks of spirituality and universal brotherhood to the deepest valleys of despair and hopelessness. May 22, Carol rated it it was amazing. Well worth reading. Sep 29, Lisa rated it it was ok Shelves: book-list , biography. Too dark and depressing for me especially struggling with my own issues at the time. His critiques of other works is also not useful to me since I have no idea who most of those people or works were.

It's also sad that people died of easily treated diseases before modern times. Had Amiel lived today he would have had some antibiotics and been fine. Sep 21, Scott Harris rated it it was ok. The gems in this long journal are brilliant but overall it is a meandering text of personal reflections. In some ways, Amiel's reflections are so intellectual and reflective that his life and experiences are obscured.

Jul 05, Matty rated it it was ok Shelves: biographies , owned. In between large chunks of convoluted digressions in a huge variety of topics he shares his - usually morose poetic - opinion on, you get a few insights of wisdom. I couldn't make it past the nd page, it's too dry a read. Oct 03, Phoenix rated it it was amazing Shelves: philosophy. May 12, Walter rated it really liked it.

Like Paul Klee, this man from the land of bank accounts that are anonymous save the face, writes a great journal. Nov 02, Enrique A.

AMIEL’S JOURNAL

In reading it I made note of those passages that especially struck me. Henri Amiel was born in , in Geneva, and was early left an orphan. Having completed a course of higher education in Geneva, Amiel went abroad and then spent some years in the universities of Heidelberg and Berlin. After his return to his own country in , though only twenty-eight years old, he received the ap- pointment in the Geneva Academy, first as Professor of yEsthetics and then of Philosophy, and there he re- mained until his death. Amiel's whole life was spent in Geneva, where he died in , in no wise distinguished from the great number of those very ordinary professors who, mechani- cally compiling their lectures from the latest books in their specialty, likewise mechanically repeat them to their hearers, and from the still larger number of unre- strained versifiers who offer their unnecessary but still salable wares to journals having a circulation of tens of thousands. Amiel had not the slightest success either. Are all my scribblings, col- lected together, my correspondence, these thousands of sincere pages, my lectures, my articles, my verses, my various memoranda, anything else than dry leaves?

Born in Geneva in , Amiel was descended from a Huguenot family driven to Switzerland by the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. After losing his parents at an early age, Amiel travelled widely, became intimate with the intellectual leaders of Europe , and made a special study of German philosophy in Berlin. In he was appointed professor of aesthetics at the academy of Geneva, and in became professor of moral philosophy. These appointments, conferred by the democratic party, deprived him of the support of the aristocratic party, whose patronage dominated all the culture of the city. This isolation inspired the one book by which Amiel is still known, the Journal Intime "Private Journal" , which, published after his death, obtained a European reputation. Although modest in volume of output, Amiel's Journal gained a sympathy that the author had failed to obtain in his life. In addition to the Journal , he produced several volumes of poetry and wrote studies on Erasmus , Madame de Stael and other writers.
