Abstract:Cultural Studies has developed a coherent set of analytical methods and political assumptions which are articulated to one another at the site of the text. The author disputes this articulation, arguing that in both method as well as assumption Cultural Studies duplicates early-modern political philosophy, and thus the political assumptions of the liberal state--which the discipline on the whole stands in critique of. A cultural model based on the distributive patterns of material activities is proposed. This model is discussed in relation to developments in political economy ca. 1945-1990, and the effect of these developments upon urban and architectural space.
