It's because classics, history, philosophy and the arts have been exhausted. Creativity can now only be found in the sciences and engineering

True
Philosophy is an exhausted quarry; only in science can there still be found anything worthwhile to do. For now, at least. Because science too will one day be exhausted.

Because the well of Westenr arts and philosophy has run dry. Only in science and technology can we still find development.

What is the difference between a religion in ascent and one in decline, besides numbers?

People say that Decline of the West was prescient and prophetic, but what did it really predict? Give some concrete examples

According to Spengler, isnt the entire world now consumed by the west, and somehow part of the west? If so, doesnt that mean the entire world is going to decline and die? What will come afterwards?
Does he address this in man and technics? I want to pick it up but it's ridiculously expensive.

It's because there is nothing left to do other than science and technology. Everything else has been exhausted. Art and philosophy are just regurgitating and refashioning the dead ends that they reached decades ago. Nothing new is being made or thought.

Spengler was very influential, unlike the other three.
Though Guenon is sitll based.

If Spengler is right about the conclusion of Western though, then where can philosophy even go from here? Will it just be reduced to stagnancy?

The East is also dying. The greatest tragedy of the West's downfall is that it consumed all, and we are now all living in the west.

Im not really into Spengler, but the concept of the second religiosity really intrigues me, because i can see it coming to be all around me as people start to waste their time with astrology, mindfullness, "spirituality" and even witchcraft amongst the woke crowd. Have there been thinkers who further expanded on a return of a degenerate form of religion as society decays?
