Was Arnold trying to be satisfying or was he trying to achieve his goal of showing one path from the chromaticism of Wagner, instead of what Mahler -- and especially Stravinsky pursued?
I think Bernstein saw the early century in terms of the seriousness of Schoenberg as opposed to the artifice of Stravinsky (after what Wagner and Mahler had to tonally contend with), but he says it far better than I!
