The New Philistines takes readers deep inside a cultural scene where all manner of ugly, inept art is celebrated so long as it toes the ideological line, and where the artistic glories of the Western world are revised and disfigured to fit ...

But I think the ' new romantics ' might lay claim to something novel, if they only
knew where to look for it. I will give them the following tip, expecting of course no
special thanks. Without too much exaggeration, it is my belief, they might refer to
themselves as the ' New Philistines.' That form I think could be used with as much
appropriateness as ' New Rich ' was used for the War-profiteers. Let us at all
events humour them and pretend that they are ' new,' merely substituting '

They overran and destroyed the Hittite Empire, including its Syrian city-states,
such as Ugarit. Unsuccessful in a similar attempt against Egypt, some of the Sea
Peoples, particularly the Peleset and Tjekker, settled along the central and lower
Mediterranean coast of Canaan. The former are the Philistines so familiar from
the Bible. Although there had been Philistines in Canaan as far back as
patriarchal times, this group had either become semitized or been absorbed by
the new wave of ...

In the text, the Church (the "New Israel") is opposed by her archenemies,
identified as contemporary followers of Islam (the "New Philistines"). The next
pair of images continues the substitution of Saracens for Philistines, combined
with the accusation of idolatry. The upper right roundel depiction of several
figures staring at a fallen idol represents the Philistines regarding their fallen idol
of Dagon (i Kings 5:3-4). However, the accompanying French text reads (again
with my emphases): ...

By the second half of the century the boys came increasingly from the upper
echelons of the new middle class, whose culture was determined more by urban
commerce, industry or professional practice. The field sports of the earlier
generations of schoolboys were replaced by team games, especially cricket and
football. Mcintosh, following Matthew Arnold's division of the upper classes into
the old 'Barbarians' and the new 'Philistines', concludes that, 'the Philistines had
imposed ...

But the 1980's threaten to deify a new kind of heathen, a person I choose to call
the New Philistine. The New Philistines are becoming well ensconced in all
areas of endeavor. They have raised to the heights the corporate director of
General Motors and dashed underfoot the Peace Corps volunteer; they have
nurtured a shocking illiteracy in the United States, while at the same time causing
the circulation of the National Inquirer to soar; and they have produced the
overpaid athlete, the ...

Professor Trilling was particularly representative of this effort in that he explicitly
tried to thaw the middle-brow mentality of the managerial classes though a
renewal of liberal education. Matthew Arnold had shown him the way. If the
culture of expertise lacked soul, one could initiate the experts into a tragic sense
of life! Reinhold Niebuhr admired Trilling's efforts to reform higher education, but
he went one step further. Niebuhr was not content merely to "Hellenize the new
Philistines.

As we shall see in Chapter 5, today Jewish fundamentalist rabbis constantly refer
to the Palestinians as the Sitra Ahra, the “evil Other”: the “newPhilistines,
Canaanites and Amalekites, whose mystical force embodies impurities,
defilement, corruption and the devil's camp. Like the construction of the (
Mycenaean) “Philistines” in the Hebrew Bible, so the modern Palestinians were
constructed in contemporary Western quarters as the infamous enemies of the
Israelis. Interestingly – as ...
