More than 130 years from Matthew Arnold's pronouncement that human beings ""must be compelled to relish the sublime,"" education in the humanities still relies on a more or less Arnoldian ideal of 'culture' as the means of intellectual development. In this distinctive and original work, Martin Ryle and Kate Soper reflect critically on this enduring ideal, exploring the growing tensions and contradictions between this and the contemporary world of work, pleasure, and consumption.
