Oswald Spengler

Oswald Spengler

German idealist philosopher, historian and representative of the philosophy of life.
Peace is a desire, war is a fact; and history has never paid heed to human desires and ideals.More Oswald Spengler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Optimism is cowardice.More Oswald Spengler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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]
History is direction—but Nature is extension—ergo, everyone gets eaten by a bear.More Oswald Spengler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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 [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
