At the heart of the arguments presented so far has been an investigation of the changing organisation of cultural reproduction. Two related dimensions of reproduction have formed the twin axes of analysis: the capacity for copying at the moment of production, and the relation between production and reception. While much of this book has been concerned with an historical investigation of the social organisation of these two dimensions, this chapter will, after a very brief review of their key phases, consider, somewhat speculatively, their contemporary significance for cultural values.
