A History of Indian Philosophy —Surendranath Dasgupta This book, the first volume of a two-volume work by Oswald Spengler, introduces itself as a "Copernican overturning" involving the rejection of the Eurocentric view of history, especially the division of history into the linear "ancient-medieval-modern" rubric. Explaining that the meaningful units for history are not epochs but whole cultures which evolve as organisms, it recognizes at least eight high cultures—Babylonian, Egyptian, Chinese, Indian, Mesoamerican, Classical (Greek/Roman), Arabian, and Western or “European-American”. Written just before the First World War, Spengler argues that the Western world is ending and we are witnessing the last season—"winter time"—of Faustian Civilization. In his depiction, Western Man is a proud but tragic figure because, while he strives and creates, he secretly knows the actual goal will never be reached. Oswald Arnold Gottfried Spengler was a German historian and philosopher of history whose interests included mathematics, science, and art. He is best known for his book The Decline of the West, originally written in German and published in 1918. His model of history postulates that any culture is a super-organism with a limited and predictable lifespan. His other works include Prussianism and Socialism, Man and Technics: A Contribution to a Philosophy of Life, The Hour of Decision, Selected Essays, and The Letters of Oswald Spengler.
