Abstract

Culture is an instrument wielded by professors to manufacture professors, who then when their turn comes, will manufacture professors. - Simone Weil

The "high" culture to which Simone Weil is referring in the above quotation is the kind of culture Professors E. D. Hirsch, Jr., and Allan Bloom refer to in their books Cultural Literacy and The Closing of the American Mind. It is not the culture which the authors of this volume are addressing. These freshmen Presidential Scholars are interested in the popular culture of their peers and associates.
