Oswald Spengler

Oswald Spengler

German idealist philosopher, historian and representative of the philosophy of life.
The mathematic, then, is an art. As such it has its styles and style periods. It is not, as the layman and the philosopher (who is in this matter a layman too) imagine, substantially unalterable, but subject like every art to unnoticed changes form epoch to epoch. The development of the great arts ought never to be treated without an (assuredly not unprofitable) side-glance at contemporary mathematics.More Oswald Spengler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We are born into this time and must bravely follow the path to the destined end. There is no other way. Our duty is to hold on to the lost position, without hope, without rescue, like that Roman soldier whose bones were found in front of a door in Pompeii, who, during the eruption of Vesuvius, died at his post because they forgot to relieve him. That is greatness. That is what it means to be a thoroughbred. The honorable end is the one thing that can not be taken from a man.More Oswald Spengler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Critical (i.e., separating) methods apply only to the world-as-nature. It would be easier to break up a theme of Beethoven with dissecting knife or acid than to break up the soul by methods of abstract thought . Nature-knowledge and man-knowledge have neither ways nor aims in common.More Oswald Spengler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When the Englishman speaks of national wealth he means the number of millionaires in the country.More Oswald Spengler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The individual's life is of importance to none besides himself: the point is whether he wishes to escape from history or give his life for it. History recks nothing of human logicMore Oswald Spengler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
