Article Summary

Arnold Toynbee’s controversial reputation rests on the multi-volume A Study of History that he published between 1934 and 1961. Rejected by some scholars as overly schematic, this wide-ranging work has been welcomed by others for its attempt to make Western historians (indeed, Westerners in general), less parochial and to inject a larger dose of empiricism into the speculative philosophy of history.
