T.S. Eliot’s Theory of Culture

  • Lester EmbreeEmail author
Part of the Phaenomenologica book series (PHAE, volume 205)


This essay was supposed to be included in CP II but unaccountably omitted. It contains unique and substantial clarifications of the concepts of social class and culture, concepts curiously not focused upon so extensively elsewhere in the oeuvre. There are also indications that Schutz had been studying cultural anthropology. He regarded Eliot highly as a poet but not as a social theorist.
