Brocker I 126
Sense/History/Spengler: Spengler's "Philosophy of Politics" is characterized by the consistent denial of a last real meaning of historical - and thus also political - events: "Life has no 'goal'. Humanity has no 'goal'. The existence of the world, in which we spin a small episode on our little star, is something much too sublime for wretchedness like 'the happiness of the most' to be the goal and purpose. In futility lies the greatness of the spectacle" (1). (SpenglerVsUtilitarianism).
