the “rational restlessness” of the West

–“I can think of only four individuals, two philosophers of history, one
sociologist, and one world historian, who have spoken in a wideranging
way of:
i) the “infinite drive,” “the irresistible trust” of the Occident,
ii) the “energetic, imperativistic, and dynamic” soul of the West,
iii) the “rational restlessness” of the West,
iv) “the deep-rooted pugnacity and recklessness of Europeans”
– Hegel, Spengler, Weber, and McNeill respectively.”– Ricardo Duchesne
