But contemporary conceptions of culture are radically different from the meaning culture used to have when anthropology developed as a discipline within the academy in the nineteenth century. A brief excursion into the shifting meaning of culture over the years may help to clarify contemporary connotations of culture.

To properly outline the structural components of Capitalism, one must begin with its smallest functional unit founded in the material world – the

German philologist and “romantic critic Karl Morgenstern, who held a professorship in aesthetics at the University of Dorpat” (Au 4) first introduced the genre of Bildungsroman. He held two lectures on the topic of Bildungsroman in 1819 and 1820 (Boes 233). Morgenstern mentions that the genre has two purposes; to portray the hero’s journey and development and, to foster “the Bildung of the reader to a greater extent than any other type of novel” (Boes 231). Nevertheless, the term had not been prominent, or well known amid this time.

Two Familiar Responses to “Bartleby”: One Internal and One External Perspective Herman Melville’s "Bartleby, the Scrivener: A Story of Wall Street" is a short story describing the Narrator’s encounter with the titular character, a mysterious man hired by the Narrator as a copywriter. In class, we looked at the Marxist response to “Bartleby”. Upon my first read, I must admit that “Bartleby” didn’t appear to me as prime material for a Marxist response. Later, I realized that what I had done was accept the superficial explanation of Bartleby’s misfortunes as offered by the Narrator. By comparison, the critiques by David Kuebrich and Naomi C. Reed forwent some of the explicit suggestions of the text and instead focused on aspects of the character of Bartleby offered by circumstance and their own expertise as literary critics.
Mahatma Gandhi’s ‘Hind Swaraj’ is an annotation of his fundamental elements of thought. He wrote this book back in 1909 in his native language, Gujarati while travelling from London to South Africa. Gandhi translated the book in English after the British government banned the Gujarati publication; the English version wasn’t imposed with legal restrictions. With the Enlightenment Period and the discovery of the ‘New World’, there was a revised approach to the politics of society and the nature of man. The fundamental arbiters of change from the Old World to the New World were: Capitalism, Colonialism, Modernity and Nationalism.
