Q2. detritus by barbarous culture

Quote of the day

In the intellectual conscience possessed of it, the social moment is no less present than the moral super-ego. Such conscience grows out of a conception of the good society and its citizens. If this conception dims… all the detritus dumped in the individual by barbarous culture – half-learning, slackness, heavy familiarity, coarseness – comes to light.

Minima Moralia, Theodor Adorno, p.29
