"By affirmative culture is meant that culture of the bourgeois epoch which lead in the course of its own development to the segregation from civilization of the mental and spiritual world as an independent realm of value that is also considered superior to civilization. Its decisive assertion of a universally obligatory, eternally better and more valuable world that must be unconditionally affirmed: a world essentially different from the factual world of the daily struggle for existence, yet realizable by every individual for himself 'from within;' without any transformation of the state of fact."
--Herbert Marcuse "On the Affirmative Concept of Culture."
