A Civilization is a dominant community that imposes its beliefs upon all other communities by violence, which must involve the use of genocide; so any community that recoils from inflicting genocide will suffer genocide.
A Community is a shared understanding; a creature that has a life-cycle like any other as it first waxes to a prime before waning into senility then dissolution.
As a civilization is a community, and a community is an understanding, then the study of civilization must be the study of understanding and so it is philosophy.
