Oswald Spengler

Oswald Spengler

German idealist philosopher, historian and representative of the philosophy of life.
When the ordinary thought of a highly cultivated people begins to regard 'having children' as a question of pro's and con's, the great turning point has come.More Oswald Spengler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The last man of the world-city no longer wants to live--he may cling to life as an individual, but as a type, as an aggregate, no, for it is a characteristic of this collective existence that it eliminates the terror of death.More Oswald Spengler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The press today is an army with carefully organized weapons, the journalists its officers, the readers its soldiers. But, as in every army, the soldier obeys blindly, and the war aims and operating plans change without his knowledge. The reader neither knows nor is supposed to know the purposes for which he is used and the role he is to play. There is no more appalling caricature of freedom of thought. Formerly no one was allowed to think freely; now it is permitted, but no one is capable of it any more. Now people want to think only what they are supposed to want to think, and this they consider freedom.More Oswald Spengler quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is the Late city that first defies the land, contradicts Nature in the lines of its silhouette, denies all Nature. It wants to be something different from and higher than Nature. These high-pitched gables, these Baroque cupolas, spires, and pinnacles, neither are, nor desire to be, related with anything in Nature. And then begins the gigantic megalopolis, the city-as-world, which suffers nothing beside itself and sets about annihilating the country picture.More Oswald Spengler quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every Socialist outbreak only blazes new paths for Capitalism.More Oswald Spengler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
