"Ancient tradition challenges the view that mankind is ever progressing from
ape-like origins towards an apotheosis of humanity. The study of history tends to confirm
the contrary thesis of a gradual descent from a golden age to an age of iron. Yet
throughout history there have arisen societies that rise above decline to exhibit the
characteristics of a high civilisation, where knowledge and art flourish and inspire later
generations. The advancement of Civilisation in the Western World seeks to portary these
exemplary times of human genius, whilst showing them against the background of
oft-recurring times of darkness."
