What is Civilization?
Contains case studies of Socrates, Vasari, Hamlet, Descartes and Mendelssohn. Professor Ferguson uses a variety of illustrations to suggest that other civilizations have an equal claim to our attention, and examines what civilization meant to other scholars, namely, Professor Toynbee, Clive Bell and Lord Clark. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
