Abstract

SWER, Gregory Morgan. Technology and the End of Western Civilisation: Spengler's and Heidegger's Histories of Life/Being. Indo-Pac. j. phenomenol. (Online) [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.1, pp.1-10. ISSN 1445-7377.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/20797222.2019.1641915.

Spengler's work is typically represented as speculative philosophy of history. There is good reason, however, to consider much of his thought as preoccupied with existential and phenomenological questions about the nature and ends of human existence, rather than with history per se. In this paper, Spengler's work is considered in comparison with Heidegger's history of Being and analysis of technological modernity. It is argued that Spengler's considerable proximity to much of Heidegger's thought compels us to reconsider the nature and scope of Spengler's philosophical project.
