The way we experience, investigate and interact with reality
changes drastically in the course of history. Do such
changes occur gradually, or can we pinpoint radical turns,
besides periods of relative stability? Building on Oswald
Spengler, we zoom in on three styles in particular, namely
Apollonian, Magian and Faustian thinking, guided by
grounding ideas which can be summarised as follows: „Act in
accordance with nature“, „Prepare yourself for the
imminent dawn“ and „Existence equals will to power“.
Finally, we reach the present. How to characterise the new
era we entered around the year 2000?

Hub Zwart is professor of philosophy of

within the broader context of contemporary culture.
