A simplified explanation of Spengler’s civilization model

Oswald spengler believed that civilization’s go through cycles . He made a comparison to plants .  Oswald believed that at the end of the winter phase of civilization . A nation will attain global imperium .

Spring : The culture begins to form like a plant popping out of the soil .

Summer : The culture is fully developed. This is the peak of the culture’s existence. Much like plants peak in the summer.

Autumn : The culture begins to decay like a wilting flower .

Winter : The culture has reached it’s final stage. The plant is in it’s final moments .
