Product picture for The Decline of the West (Oxford Paperbacks)by Oswald Spengler
Book › Paperback
Since its first publication in two volumes between 1918-1923, The Decline of the West has ranked as one of the most widely read and most talked about books of our time. In all its various editions, it has sold nearly 100,000 copies. A twentieth-century Cassandra, Oswald Spengler thoroughly probed the origin and "fate" of our civilization, and the result can be (and has been) read as a prophesy of the Nazi regime. His challenging views have led to harsh criticism over the years, but the...
Book cover from Man and Technics: A Contribution to a Philosophy of Lifeby Oswald Spengler
Book › Paperback
In this new and revised edition of Oswald Spengler's classic, Man and Technics, Spengler makes a number of predictions that today, more than eighty years after the book was first published, have turned out to be remarkably accurate. Spengler predicted that industrialisation would lead to serious environmental problems and that countless species would become extinct. He also predicted that labour from Third World countries would increasingly outcompete Western workers by doing the same work for...
Book cover from The Decline of the West, Vol. 2: Perspectives of World Historyby Oswald Spengler
Book › Hardcover
Oswald Spengler was born in 1880 at Blankenburg, Germany. He studied mathematics, philosophy, and history at Munich and Berlin. Except for his doctor's thesis on Heraclitus, he published nothing before the first volume of The Decline of the West, which appeared when he was thirty-eight.

He chose his main title in 1912, finished the first draft of "Form...

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
Book cover from La Decadencia De Occidente Tomo 2 (Spanish Edition)by Oswald Spengler
Book › Paperback
Crecimiento, Florecimiento y Decadencia, como el ciclo vital de un ser vivo, que tiene un comienzo y un fin determinados. Además, cada una de las etapas que conformaban el ciclo vital de una cultura presentaba, según el esquema spengleriano, una serie de rasgos distintivos que se manifestaban en todas las culturas por igual enmarcando los acontecimientos particulares. Con base en este esquema y aplicando un método que él llamó la “morfología comparativa de las culturas”, Spengler...
Book cover from La Decadencia De Occidente  Tomo 1 (Spanish Edition)by Oswald Spengler
Book › Paperback
En una perspectiva de décadas se aprecia cada vez con mayor claridad que la dominación del mundo por los países occidentales y, en especial, por el mundo anglosajón, toca a su fin. El desarrollo de China, India, Brasil, etc. tendrá sobresaltos sin duda, pero el despegue económico me parece definitivo y la coincidencia en el proceso del conjunto de todos ellos les aporta una masa crítica conjunta suficiente para generar una fuerte dosis de autonomía frente a los países tradicionalmente...
