Sample text

Drawing upon their own language and taking pride in their achievements, the German middle classes begin to establish a sense of identity and self-confidence that needed no reference to things French or ‘civilized’ to justify its existence. Elias describes this process as a ‘self legitimating’ one for the German middle classes, whereby the distinctiveness of German life comes to be defined as worthy in its own right. Since the idea of kultur already embodied the idea of Volksgeist in German thinking, the attraction for a folk with a distinct spirit was, perhaps, somewhat obvious.

In much the same way as we talk today about the cultural differences between people, so people during that period spoke and thought in terms of differing races. So much so, that by the turn of the twentieth century, the language of race was the prominent discourse; and because of culture’s close relationship to the civilization concept, the influence of racially determinist thinking on the civilization concept would eventually alter the meaning of ‘culture’ both in Germany and in the United States.

This idea of culture, as conceived by Arnold and Herder then, is Shakespeare and the impact of reading him; there is no hint here of any difficulty involved in exchanging Shakespeare for Goethe, quite the contrary. Only by reading the best of everything, including both Shakespeare and Goethe, are the benefits of ‘culture’ such as art, literature and intellectual achievement derived. The benefits we gain from reading a good book, reflecting on a piece of music, or appreciating a work of art or architecture are not quantifiable or readily tangible.
