The Golden Bough:  A Study in Comparative Religion (1890)

1. "In the course of time the slow advance of knowledge, which has dispelled so many cherished illusions, convinced at least the more thoughtful portion of mankind that the alterations of summer and winter, of spring and autumn, were not merely the result of their own magical rites, but that some deeper cause, some mightier power, was at work behind the shifting scenes of nature."

2. "For myth changes while custom remains constant; men continue to do what their did before them, though the reasons on which their fathers acted have been long forgotten.

Workshop sessions 2022

As an essential part of the conference programme of IXth SWS International Scientific Conferences of Social Sciences and ARTS & Humanities, this year again we will host many artistic performances, exhibitions, and workshops.

Moreover, sometimes they can merge into an interdisciplinary union in order to produce something beyond their traditional boundaries.

The sharp tongue of Oswald Spengler

1. This is our purpose: to make as meaningful as possible this life that has been bestowed upon us; to live in such a way that we may be proud of ourselves; to act in such a way that some part of us lives on.

2. The secret of all victory lies in the organization of the non-obvious.

3. There is no proletarian, not even a Communist movement, that has not operated in the interests of money, and for the time being permitted by money - and that without the idealists among its leaders having the slightest suspicion of the fact.

4. If few can stand a long war without deterioration of soul, none can stand a long peace.
