"Toynbee's enormous work attempts a complete analysis of the cyclical view of history, in which the civilizations (of which Toynbee identifies twenty-six) are the units. It is liable to the same criticism as Spengler with whom Toynbee shares his popularity in Europe and America." Printing in the Mind of Man, 421.
