Social and Cultural Traits in Germany

Social German culture has been shaped by many major historical events, ranging from the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire in the aftermath of Napoleon's victory at Austerlitz, to the 20th century's two World Wars, and the subsequent separation and reunification of the country. Germany has made many contributions to world culture, with the most notable being in the spheres of philosophy (Leibniz, Kant, Hegel, Schopenhauer, Marx, Nietzsche, and Wittgenstein) and music (from classicists like Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, and Wagner, to modern musicians such as Kraftwerk, Stockhausen, Deutsch-Amerikanische Freundschaft, KMFDM, Moritz von Oswald, and Modeselektor).
