Shelves: cultural-studies
Eagleton is not the first to note that ‘culture’ is one of the most complex words in the English language (indeed for many of us of a certain age that observation stems from Raymond Williams – whose influence on Eagleton is implicit and explicit throughout this book, including where Eagleton notes Williams’s case that perhaps only ‘nature’ is a more complex word than ‘culture’). There is little doubt that ‘culture’ has become more complex since Williams first made his case in 1976, in part becau ...more

"إنجيل هذا العصر"، "إنجيل الثقافة" ... كان ذلك وصف شوقى جلال مترجم كتاب "فكرة الثقافة"، الكتاب يتناول تاريخ الثقافة على مدى ثلاثة قرون حتى مطلع القرن الواحد والعشرين، كما يقدم شرحاً وتحليلاً فكرياً عميقاً للنظريات الثقافة التى ارتبطت بالتيارات السياسية والاجتماعية فى عصرها.

الجدير بالذكر أن تيرى إيجلتون آثر إهداء كتابه إلى المفكر العربى الذى يتميز بدراساته الثقافية، ألا وهو إدوارد سعيد.

Terry in his book "The idea of culture" (2000), presents several meaning of cultural. He explains the culture as sense of identity, loyalty and ethics. He distinguishes the different meaning and history of culture during several centuries. In addition, he tries by different ways to introduce to general reader the modernity argues around culture. In one chapter he talks about the complex relation between culture and nature; also explains the possibilities for creating common culture. In addition, ...more

I have to re read it for deeper understanding.

يبدو ان مفاهيم مثل المواطن العالمي والعولمة والثقافة المشتركة والهوية والقومية الثورية فرضت نفسها على جدول اعمال الكوب في الثلاثة عقود الاخيرة
يتعرض الكاتب في الكتاب لقضايا ويوضح ان معظمها لم يحسم بعد مثل ازدواجية الثقافة وعدم تماهيها مع نفسها وعلاقتها للطبيعة ويناقش المذاهب التي تناولت الثقافة منذ نشأة التيارات اليسارية والانسانية والتأسيسية الراديكالية وحتى نشؤ نظرية مابعد المودرنزم ويعرض ما إذا كانت الثقافة قد تقد ترايقا للسياسة وينتقد بعض المثقفين الراديكالين والذين توجهوا الى الثقافة العليا

Honestly, I'm confused. There's some brilliant stuff in there, but then chapter 4 happens, and it's all downhill from there. All of a sudden, the book gets shallow and prejudiced, and Mr Eagleton starts sounding like a frustrated old man, full of anger. First part of the book - great, second part - sad.
A bit of a disappointment.


Također, hrvatski prijevod je kriminalno loš, gramatičkih grešaka tona, naročito onih na osnovnoškolskoj razini (č/ć, ije/je), toplo preporučam izdavačkoj kući Jesenski i

книга для читання і перечитування. місце для коротких дайвінг-сесій у пошуках перлини з дна прибережних коралових хащів і маршрут довших веслувань меандрами гірської річки, коли захват від авторового стилю, як політ крізь шумовиння стримини, майже не лишає часу на педантичне обдумування й неквапливе відкладання прочитаного на охайні полички з соліннями й цукріннями

"Though culture, as we shall see, is still not politically sovereign, it is intensely relevant to a world in which the joint wealth of the three richest individuals is equal to the combined wealth of the 600 million poorest. It is just that the culture wars which matter concern such questions as ethnic cleansing, not the relative merits of Racine and soap operas."

Um, stavila sam "rating" iako i dalje nemam u sebi tu mogućnost percipiranja sviđa li mi se nešto ili ne ako je to nešto ujedno i ispitna literatura. (potpuno nepotrebno objašnjenje, ali eto, što sad.)

A small book about culture but a difficult want that needs to be read many times before one understands it
