"Oswald Arnold Gottfried Spengler (29 May 1880 - 8 May 1936) was a German historian and philosopher whose interests also included mathematics, science, and art. He is best known for his book The Decline of the West (Der Untergang des Abendlandes), which puts forth a cyclical theory of the rise and decline of civilizations. After Decline was published in 1918, Spengler produced Prussiandom and Socialism (Preussentum und Sozialismus) in 1920, in which he argued for an organic version of socialism and authoritarianism. He wrote extensively throughout World War I and the interwar period, and supported German hegemony in Europe. The National Socialists held Spengler as an intellectual precursor but he was ostracised after 1933 for his pessimism about Germany and Europe's future, his refusal to support Nazi ideas of racial superiority, and his critical work The Hour of Decision." - WikipediaKeywords: GERMAN PHILOSOPHERS PHILOSOPHY OF HISTORY CLASSICS WORLD LITERATURE.
