Reading the world (Bourdieu, 1984). Under the influence

Reading Notes of a Social Critique of theJudgement of TasteThe objectof analyses is a cultural perception and cultural nobility. The main idea andalso thesis is that positive attitude towards cultural practices depends on theeducational level and only than on social origin.

Thus we can consider a socialhierarchy of the culture consumers, which is called cultural nobility. Culturalnobility is the matter of debate between different social groups with their ownframework on culture and works of art for more than 300 years because ofappearance of modern art. Authoranalyses different theories to examine the cultural perception and also hetries to show different attitudes towards culture and different cultural formsby analyzing this theories. E.g. the intellectualist theory shows that culturehas its own code of seeing and understanding it. Only people, who possess the culturalcompetence, can understand a meaning interest of culture and it is called’sensible properties’. If you do not have this code, you are blind looking atworks of art.

Obtaining a literature code is very important because artist’saim is to be autonomous, which means a primacy to sphere of which an artist isa master form, manner, style. Sometimes it is hard t understand for peoplewithout a cultural background but only such work of art will contain referenceto its own history and will be perceived historically. As far as thesestatements are very extensive, I would like to discuss them on classes in orderto make clarifications.An aesthetictheory of perceiving works of art implies the break with the ordinary attitudetowards the world (Bourdieu, 1984). Under the influence of this, the culturalconsumption breaks the rules: Nowadays culture changes and it is not the same aswe used to see in the past. We need to find correlation between things that arecompletely remote by meaning, e.

g. between music and food. Thus ‘taste ofsense’ and ‘taste of reflection’ do not have borders any more.

On mypersonal opinion, the main argument of this essay is a connection betweeneducational background and social status and attitude towards culture, which isexpressed in different ways. Thus, the main key points of this are culturalperception, cultural nobility, autonomous of the author, pure gaze on works ofart and so one.
