Matthew Arnold’s acclaimed collection of essays tackles difficult questions about humanity, culture, society, and the ultimate value of government
In this critical masterwork, Matthew Arnold contrasts culture, which seeks to utilize the best of human thought, with anarchy, which derives from the impulse toward nonconformity and the dissolution of the church. In the context of these two opposed concepts, Arnold explores the nature of goodness, morality, self-improvement, and progress.
Written in response to upheaval and reactionary tumult in nineteenth-century Great Britain, Culture and Anarchy is a timeless treatise on society by a great philosophical mind.
