Man & Technics:
A Contribution to a Philosophy of Life

Oswald Spengler
Uckfield, Sussex: Historical Review Press, n.d.
80 pages

paperback: $12

Man and Technics is an ideal introduction to Oswald Spengler’s philosophy of history and culture. In it, he condenses the essentials of his sprawling, 1,000+ page magnum opus The Decline of the West and places it in the broadest possible context: an account of man’s origins in prehistory and his speculations about man’s destiny. Spengler paints a bleak portrait of the future of European man, whose “Faustian” striving for the infinite has given rise to a global technological civilization that has taken on a life of its own, breaking down both natural and historical orders and releasing titanic energies that threaten to destroy nature and higher man alike.


1. Technics as the Tactics of Living
2. Herbivores and Beasts of Prey
3. The Origin of Man: Hand and Tool
4. The Second Stage: Speech and Enterprise
5. The Last Act: Rise and End of the Machine Culture


Oswald Spengler (1880-1936) was one of the twentieth century’s most gifted conservative thinkers and an influential philosopher of history and culture. He is the author of Decline of the West, The Hour of Decision, Prussianism and Socialism, and Man and Technics.
