Far be it from me to know precisely what augers make 2013 such a sticky skip year for so many people, but Cassirer thinks Germans were reacting to a book by Oswald Spengler in 1918: Der Untergang . . .
History reveals many years of occult science. By the time Bacon wrote his Novum Organum, he tried to teach us to clear away "all sorts of illusions, fallacies and prejudices and from our human freaks and fancies." (p. 264).
The footnotes in Symbol, Myth, and Culture by Donald Phillip Verene frequently point out the fuller treatment of ideas in Cassirer's book The Myth of the State.
