Oswald Spengler

The actual facts do not really matter. The a posteriori historical generalizations having been inverted unconsciously into absolute a priori regulative principles of historical change, they can no longer be seriously contradicted by other empirical facts which had been previously ignored. --Mortimer J. Adler, Spengler, The Spenglerites, and Spenglerism, Psyche, July 1927
