Arnold Joseph Toynbee CH April 14, — October 22, was a British historian whose twelve-volume analysis of the rise and fall of civilizations, A Study of History, , was a monumental synthesis of world history, a metahistory based on universal rhythms of rise, flowering and decline, which examined history from a global perspective. Toynbee approached history not from the perspective that takes the nation-state or ethnic groups as the unit of history, but from civilizations as a unit, taking into account of the roles of religious traditions world wide. Rejecting a natural deterministic view of Oswald Spengler — , who similarly explained the rise and fall of civilization in The Decline of the West, Toynbee introduced the concept of challenge-response, how people responded the challenges they encountered determined the rise and fall of civilization. His perspective of history also impacted the philosophy of history. Toynbee was the nephew of the economic historian Arnold Toynbee, with whom he is sometimes confused.

Ratnajeevan H. Hoole —. Arnold Toynbee who was at the London School of Economics was not as well acknowledged as he was outside the UK after he suggested that the Chinese and their language were well positioned to be dominant soon.

Toynbee , published from — It received enormous popular attention but according to historian Richard J. Evans , "enjoyed only a brief vogue before disappearing into the obscurity in which it has languished. The volume work contains more than 3 million words and about 7, pages, plus pages of indices. Toynbee argues that civilizations are born out of more primitive societies , not as the result of racial or environmental factors, but as a response to challenges , such as hard country, new ground, blows and pressures from other civilizations, and penalization. He argues that for civilizations to be born, the challenge must be a golden mean; that excessive challenge will crush the civilization, and too little challenge will cause it to stagnate. He argues that civilizations continue to grow only when they meet one challenge only to be met by another, in a continuous cycle of "Challenge and Response".

Perhaps it is also because Professor Toynbee stresses the importance of freedom and activity in history , and because he points to an unending natural, spiritual progress in a religion without creeds.

Сьюзан знала, что остальное - это штурмовая группа АНБ, которая, перерезав электрические провода, ворвется в дом с автоматами, заряженными резиновыми пулями. Члены группы будут уверены, что производят облаву на наркодельцов. Стратмор, несомненно, постарается проверить все лично и найти пароль из шестидесяти четырех знаков. Затем он его уничтожит, и Цифровая крепость навсегда исчезнет из Интернета. - Действуй своим маячком очень осторожно, - сказал Стратмор. - Если Северная Дакота заподозрит, что мы его ищем, он начнет паниковать и исчезнет вместе с паролем, так что никакая штурмовая группа до него не доберется. - Все произойдет, как булавочный укол, - заверила его Сьюзан.
