German Philosophers

The Germans, wow! Schopenhauer, Marx, Nietzsche, Spengler, Heidegger – each one turned philosophy and/or intellectual history on its head. (How many heads are there – apparently a lot more than we once thought.) Spengler, for instance, offers a totally novel interpretation of Western culture and world history. There are some weak points but overall it is both eye-popping and prophetic.
