Oswald Spengler

Oswald Spengler

German idealist philosopher, historian and representative of the philosophy of life.
The press today is an army with carefully organized weapons, the journalists its officers, the readers its soldiers. The reader neither knows nor is supposed to know the purposes for which he is used and the role he is to play.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]
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]
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]
I maintain that many an inventor, many a diplomat, many a financier is a sounder philosopher than all those who practice the dull craft of experimental psychology.More Oswald Spengler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
