A name for this civilisation theory?

I've had trouble googling this because it's hard to be specific.

There are theories that we have attained civilization before but through some catastrophe relapsed back into barbarism, only to start from scratch again. Does anyone know if there is a title for this theory (e.g. lost civilisation theory)? I'm trying to slip it into a conversation between intellectuals.

Thanks.
