      Whoever lived in Gath, the biblical mentions of Philistines consistently dismiss them as polytheistic barbarians who superstitiously consult priests and diviners before making decisions. In the book of Judges, the Philistines are portrayed as ruthless and weak in moral fiber: witness Delilah's use of deceitful charms to rob Samson of his power. These are almost like archetypal distinctions, or perhaps they just are archetypal. He lists Barbarians, Philistines, and the Populace for their archetypal cultural value. Basically, that section of the book explains the various distinctions within a population with respect to their taste.

      This points to the tacit compact, mentioned in my last paper, between the Barbarians and the Philistines, and into which it is hoped that the Populace will one day enter; the compact, so creditable to English honesty, that since each class has only the ideas and aims of its ordinary self to give effect to, none of them shall, if it exercise.   The third group is the Populace, or the disenfranchised, poverty-stricken lower class who have been let down by the negligent Barbarians and greedy Philistines. For Arnold, the Populace represents the most malleable, and the most deserving, social class to be elevated out of anarchy through the pursuit of culture.

    Preface to Essays in criticism; first series --The function of criticism at the present time --Heine and the Philistines --"Sweetness and light" --Barbarians, Philistines, populace --Hebraism and Hellensim --Pericles and Socrates --A Prussian critic on English education --An address to the Eton literary society --Shakespeare and the Greek poets. "Barbarians, Philistines, And Populace" "Men Of Culture Are The True Apostles Of Equality" "Sweetness And Light" The book is nevertheless a masterpiece of polished prose.
