Survey’s argument against getting into cultural revival (14)


I believe the answer is:


'survey's' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'argument against getting into cultural revival' is the wordplay.
'argument against' becomes 'con' (I've seen this in other clues).
'getting into' indicates putting letters inside.
'cultural revival' becomes 'renaissance'.
'con' going inside 'renaissance' is 'RECONNAISSANCE'.

(Other definitions for reconnaissance that I've seen before include "Initial survey" , "Military observation" , "Preliminary survey" , "Scouting" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
