Keywords: topophrenic; space; geocritic; subordinate;

Summary/Abstract: This study presents the way in which Cioran relates to the Transylvanian space, considering a double finding: on the one hand an attachment sometimes denied, but always affirmed by the continuous appeal of childhood memories, therefore a topophrenic vision, and on the other hand the vision of Romanian culture as one being in the role of “subordinate”, both because of the historical domination and oppression, as well as the way of being of the Romanian people, to whom he reproaches his slowness.
