“Every man who has ever lived has been born within a certain sphere of concepts; a certain totality of (normally unconsidered) beliefs about man, the world, man’s place in the world; and, usually, gods or a god, and man’s relationship to them/him. If, for any reason, these sphere begins to collapse the man inside it either goes mad or becomes a great philosopher, saint or scientist.

Philip Toynbee, ‘Under their togas’, The Observer, 9 September 1979, p.37
