Something for you Cult Studs

[hey, that last post wasn't about photographs! what gives. And, hey, this one isn't either. But the next one will be.]

Anyone catch Habermas' little parenthetical definition of "culture" wedged into the final section ("25. A Sociological Attempt at Clarification") of Structural Transformation?

"...culture (which as a kind of historical sediment can be considered a type of primordial 'opinion' or 'prejudice' that probably has scarely undergone any change in its social-psychological structure)..." (p. 245).

Nerdy, I know, to have noticed it. But, interesting. A primordial opinion.
