当代文化,只有部分图片-Contemporary Culture,Only Part of the

更新时间:2011-01-06    来源/发布:www.en369.cn    作者/编辑:英语作文网

It is argued that contemporary culture has great relevance for students today. There is a good deal of truth in this idea.However, it does not necessarily mean that colleges and universities should offer more courses on popular music, film, advertising and television.

  Surely, our lives are greatly influenced by contemporary culture since TV programmes and popular MTVs are shown on television day and night. Advertisement and commercials are seen here and there, and film is certainly a hot topic in parties.Having little knowledge about contemporary culture, it may be difficult for you to understand what people around you are thinking of or talking about. What is more, it is dangerous to some extent if you fail to “live with” contemporary culture in a proper way. For example, you will probably be submerged and confused by TV programmes unless you can tell what programmes are worth watching and what appear on TV are true.

  Meanwhile, we should be aware that contemporary culture is only part of our culture. Classical arts and literature of the past are not only what used to be popular years age but what last and survive through many generations. They are the essence of human civilization, treasures that our ancestors handed down to us. In Paris, it is believed that a well educated person should master at least one classic musical instrument such as piano or violin, to inherit the culture of the past which they are so proud of, and to understand the way that people in the past saw the world.

  Arts and literatures of the past also have great influence on today’s society. As the contemporary culture is developed from culture before it, it is necessary to know the arts and literatures in the past in order to have a deeper insight into what is happening today and to foresee the coming future.

  In addition, although hundreds or even thousands of years have passed since the creation of those classical arts and literatures, quite a lot of people still enjoy them. Shakespeare’s plays are put on stage every week and the Lorvre is flooded with tourists from all over the world every day!

  Therefore, I support the idea that colleges and universities should offer various courses of both contemporary culture and culture of the past. Only through a balanced understanding of the two can a person truly understand the culture and society of today. And only in this way can a student be truly well educated.
