The Great Debate on Cultural Democracy

by Bernard Berelson — 1962

The trouble with the debate on cultural democracy is that it is seldom joined. The intellectuals continue to attack popular culture in the little magazines and in the academies. The men of action continue to defend themselves on Madison Avenue. And the students of the subject, the social scientists, continue to report their researches in terms uncongenial to the core of the debate, if not downright unreadable by the other debaters. Suppose these three camps were forced to a confrontation of positions? That is what the author attempts to do here to do here—to put their main arguments down in such juxtaposition that they are compelled to deal with one another's strong points as well as their own weak ones.
