Oswald Spengler was a prominent historian in the Weimar Republic (1918–1933). From 1908 to 1911, he worked as a high school teacher in Hamburg. Thereafter he worked as an independent author in Munich. His The Decline of the West (Der Untergang des Abendlandes, 1918, 1922) provided an important impetus for cultural analysis in the 1920s and 1930s in Germany.
