On the Kulturkampf

A "15 Minute Insights" audio presentation by Brian Kemple.

"The term 'culture war' was adapted from the German Kulturkampf: translated more literally, the cultural struggle.

"Does it make a difference if we speak of a culture war as opposed to a cultural struggle? I believe so. I believe that war is an inapt metaphor for speaking about culture--and that engaging in a war over culture results in victories not worth winning."
