Example text

Also, the idea of a society populated by worker­artists raises the question of the place of the artist proper, a question that may be addressed by a brief sketch of Proudhon's influence on Gustave Courbet.  the painter must never let his own personality overshadow that of his characters" (Rubin, Realism, 97). "45 Nonetheless, the survival of the legend and Debord's use of it, where it seems to be cited as fact, shows how extensive the anticultural anarchist tradition is.  Curiously, Bakunin's apocryphal call for sacrifice may have greater cultural implications than Kropotkin's historical call for service.

Sonn's point that anarchism "fused elements of a remembered past with a vision of utopian future" seems especially relevant to Proudhon. " 28 Anarchism, then, does not reject origins so much as it seeks to reconstruct them, provided the crucial point is upheld that the archon is everyman.  But a truer picture of these two anarchists—and of anarchism itself—would allow us to see the tension between the romantic and the scientist, the idealist and the materialist.  A few months later, in Zurich, Bakunin met the revolutionary, socialist Wilhelm Weltling, whose Guarantees of Harmony and Freedom (1842) pointed Bakunin toward anarchism, as this passage, which Bakunin quoted to a friend, suggests: "The perfect society had no government, but only an administration, no laws, but only obligations, no punishments, but only means of correction'' (Morris, Bakunin, 11).

Curiously, Bakunin's apocryphal call for sacrifice may have greater cultural implications than Kropotkin's historical call for service. It remains to be seen whether Kropotkin's faith in modernity and Page 41 his dislike of modernism pose a cultural problem; whether Emma Goldman's devotion to Ibsen and her promotion of anarchism are deeply related; whether the Ferrer Schools that sprang up in America and Europe in tribute to the assassinated anarchist Francisco Ferrer really espoused a cultural curriculum different from other leftist establishments; whether Benjamin Tucker's Unique Book­shop and Press in New York City was truly a cultural center or simply a propaganda factory, and so on.
