Human value seemed to be an effective way of understanding our personal knowledge, activity, and skills, and how these elements shape our personality, memory, and character traits. The observation that human skills and knowledge had value was first understood in the eighteenth century, and became a driving force of the Enlightenment and the British industrial revolution. Karl Marx argued that a consequence of the industrial revolution was that it changed the nature of human labor value psychologically. Pierre Bourdieu’s idea of social and cultural capital values were not just useful to the sociologists and social philosophers that subsequently used it to discuss social divisions by like groups. French people do not need to be resident in their homeland to be members of their imagined institution, members of other nationalities often live easily in France. Cultural institutions can be state of mind or theoretical space, with a physical though not geographical “center” or “centers,” and cultural objects scattered throughout other spaces.
