The Cultural Contradictions of Capitalism

By Daniel Bell | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

THE CHAPTERS in this book have been rewritten from earlier drafts to provide a continuity of theme and argument.

The first essay, "The Cultural Contradictions of Capitalism," was drawn from a larger manuscript written in the winter of 1969-1970. A section of that draft, using that title, appeared in The Public Interest, Fall 1970. Another section, which is incorporated in the present chapter, was read at an Arden House conference of the Columbia University School of Business and the Institute of Life Insurance, and published, in part, as "American Culture and the Concept of Change," in the small book Change or Revolution ( 1971), edited by Edward Sullivan.

The second essay, "The Disjunctions of Cultural Discourse," draws freely from three inter-related essays, with additional material: "The Eclipse of Distance," Encounter, May 1963; "Modernity and Mass Society," in Studies in Public Communication, University of Chicago, Summer 1961; and "The Disjunction of Culture and Social Structure," Daedalus, Winter 1965.

The third essay, "The Sensibility of the Sixties," was drawn from the larger manuscript written in 1969-1970, and appeared under the title "Sensibility in the Sixties," in Commentary, June 1971.

"Toward the Great Instauration: Religion and Culture in a Post- Industrial Age" was given as the keynote lecture of a symposium on ethics and technology, celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the Haifa Technicon, in Haifa, Israel, December 1974. It was published in Social Research, Fall 1975. The present chapter is a revised version of that lecture.

The first section of the fifth essay, "Unstable America: Transitory and Permanent Factors in a National Crisis," was published under
