Chapter Summary

It is the story of the rise and fall of philosophy of culture - the schematic outline of the conditions and putative reasons of its emergence, the internal difficulties of some of its representative realisations and the possible causes of its decline - that constitutes the topic of this chapter. In this sense it aims at a reconstruction rather in terms of history of ideas, though hopefully not without some philosophical relevance. The last point is important for the clarification of the sense in which one can legitimately talk about the gradual &t;disappearance&t; of philosophy of culture in the period between the two world wars. It is, of course, generally recognised that the various components of &t;culture&t; the self-understandable meaningful organisation of everyday life and popular culture, popular culture and high culture, the sciences and the arts with various degrees of intensity interact with, and influence, each other.

Keywords: Germany; Nineteenth Century; philosophy of culture
