Sweetness and Light
Matthew , and . Chapter ... The disparagers of culture make its motive curiosity; sometimes, indeed ..... if it were more complete.

In the middle decades of the century, Britain was particularly turbulent, famously unsettled by the inhumanity of early industrialism and the demands of a vocal working-class for political representation. Anthropology views culture not as something to be acquired but rather as “a whole way of life,” something we already have. Instead of thinking for themselves, people accept everything they are told as if it were infallibly good, without considering it further.

The incident precipitated Arnold’s thinking, and its violence represents the “Anarchy” in. Such beliefs he insisted are “machinery,” tools to accomplish a goal, but too often people confuse the means with the end. Historically, this pattern began in the period following the Renaissance, he claimed, when Britain was dominated by the Puritans, and their values continued to define British society in the nineteenth century.

He is the author of Nerves and Narratives: A Cultural History of Hysteria in Nineteenth-Century British Prose. This historical conflict was enshrined in the political fight over Britain’s “Corn Laws,” marked by massive demonstrations until their repeal in 1846, and it serves as one example of Arnold’s analysis of Britain’s central problem: none of the three classes understood or acknowledged the needs of the others. Today, Arnold’s complex theory of culture is often reduced to the sound bite of his famous phrase, “the best that is known and thought in the world,” as if culture itself were contained in a set of specific books (“Function” 283). His theory defines culture in idealist terms, as something to strive for, and in this it helped to shape twentieth-century thinking about the value of the humanities in higher education.

    The word originated in the world of farming, as a term for tending crops or animals, which is where we get the word (Williams 87-93). He described Britain as suffering from the conflicting interests of three different classes of people, and he gave each a new name meant to describe its predominant trait. Conventional wisdom and dogmatism were essentially monopolies in intellectual form that must be eliminated so that ideas can freely circulate to find their natural value in this marketplace of ideas.

    His ideas were predicated as a solution to the problem represented by the Hyde Park Incident, which he believed demonstrated the need for greater social unity to counter the danger of a divided society. Arnold’s culture is idealist; it represents something to be strived for, and this makes it prone to claims of elitism. While staunchly opposing violence, he nevertheless understood the need for social change.

    Rather than a means to differentiate the elite from the mass, Arnoldian culture assumes the elite and the mass have a shared humanity. Each redefines from a term limited to individuals to one that encompasses society as a whole. This of course was the same marketplace ideology identified as the source of Britain’s social problems. As a result, Arnold’s interest in free play was itself an example of how ideas can be unconsciously shaped by the values of the society in which an author lives.
