First Paragraph

It is very likely that never in human history have there been as many treaties, essays, theories and analyses focused on culture as there are today. This fact is even more surprising given that culture, in the meaning traditionally ascribed to the term, is now on the point of disappearing. And perhaps it has already disappeared, discreetly emptied of its content, and replaced by another content that distorts its earlier meaning. 

- From Notes on the Death of Culture: Essays on Spectacle and Society by Mario Vargas Llosa
