In this excerpt from Culture and Everyday Life (2005), D. Inglis intends to clarify the notions of high/low and popular cultures and their impact on everyday life and conversely, arguing that the social and cultural spheres cannot be separated. He also tries to explain the way art is defined as such.

He talks about the opposition and even hierarchy between high and popular culture and how this opposition has emerged. High culture refers to the culture of elites whereas popular culture is the one of the working class. High culture is deemed to be superior to popular culture. It is more ?noble', has greater value for it is produced to induce reflection when popular culture is only produced to be consumed. Popular culture embodies consumption society.
