Oswald Arnold Gottfried Spengler|
Oswald Spengler's The Decline of the West, which received almost unprecedented public response in Europe upon its publication, has been ranked with Toynbee’s works as the century’s most significant interpretation of history. In these essays, written after The Decline of the West, Spengler expands upon his original thesis and discusses several other still-timely questions – socialism, the German national character, the possibility of world peace, and the proper role of Nietzsche and Marx in Western history. In the opening paragraph of “Prussianism and Socialism”, the longest of these six essays, we learn that the subject matter of this political tract comprises “the germinal stage in the development of the entire thesis” of The Decline of the West.
