A seminal work

by Slice on Apr 28, 2010

I bought this because it was taking too long to get through it for using the library copy. I am going through the 100 Greatest books list and this was on it. I debated whether I really wanted to read it, as philosophy is not my favorite subject. However, I can see that it is a seminal work and whether I agree with Spengler or not, he was a well-read and intelligent man. This work paved the way for how people thought about history. But it is dense and he uses examples from all sorts of fields and isn't easy to follow. Enter at your own risk! But if you want to be edified, this is the book for you.


Decline of the West

by Mythos on May 25, 2007

Ok. This is a tome, I believe is the correct word for such a massive volume of work. Just began and got through Chapter 1 but had to lay it aside for other reading commitments. It is a book that has been on my reading list for many years due to its constant reference by one of my favorite gurus, Joseph Campbell. I plan to slowly make my way through it and even if some of the material is now outdated, glean from it what relevance still lingers upon a land of freedom.

The best...

... book ever written. Period! (But look for the FULL version, good people! One which is available but not the most common. It's a seer paranoia when a book by a (great) anti-liberal thinker gets censored ad usu Delphini by liberals and nobody seems to care.)
