ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the influence of German historicism to Oswald Spengler and Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel's conception on history. Spengler and Hegel attributed history a fundamental role in the pursuit for understanding the human condition. Spengler and Hegel are concerned in fathoming the metaphysical meaning of history as contradicted to simply identifying the phenomenal manifestations of the historical procedures. Moreover, Spengler and Hegel share the same concept of the temporal domain of world history ignoring the huge period of prehistory as unsignificant to their query.
