  • What would have been lost if Caedmon simply repeated the name God


    2- What would have been lost if Caedmon, instead of using a variety of expressions for God, had simply repeated the name God?

    Now we must praise . . . God,

    God’s might . . . and his mind plans,

    the work of God, . . . when he of wonders every one,

    God, . . . the beginning established.

    He first created . . . for men’s sons

    heaven as a roof, . . . God;

    then middle-earth . . . God,

    God, . . . afterwards made–

    for men earth, . . . God.

  • Differences between Boudieu’s objectified, embodied, and institutionalized cultural capital



    1a) Describe in your own words the differences between Boudieu’s objectified, embodied, and institutionalized cultural capital. How may exchanging one’s cultural and social capital for economic capital and vice versa reproduce existing forms of inequality in society? Give an example, situating it in a social institution (e.g. work, family, education, health, media).

    2b) “it has to be posited…that economic capital is at the root of all other types of capital and [at the same time] that these transformed, disguised forms of economic capital, never entirely reducible to that definition, produce their most specific effects only to the extent that they conceal the fact that economic capital….is at the root of their effects.” (Bourdieu, p. 177, 1st ed., stress added).

    How modern society has become one-dimensional

  • How modern society has become one-dimensional



    5a) Even writing in the 1950s, Marcuse vividly describes how modern society has become one-dimensional; that is, we have identified so much with the needs imposed on us by industrial capitalism that we are no longer cognizant of our dreams and desires, individually and collectively. What are some examples from contemporary popular culture that you think contribute to this one-dimension? Are there aspects of contemporary consumer culture that you think might do the opposite and actually empower or liberate individuals?

    5b) “We are again confronted with one of the most vexing aspects of advanced industrial civilization: the rational character of its irrationality. Its productivity and efficiency, its capacity to increase and spread comforts, to turn waste into need, and destruction into construction…People recognize themselves in their commodities. The very mechanism which ties the individual to his society has changed, and social control is anchored in the new needs which it has produced (Marcuse, p. 287
