This paper discusses the cost-benefit ratio of the so-called cultural turn. The main argument in favour of the cultural turn is a broader understanding of possible objects for the humanities. The main argument against this turn is the reification of culture as something without social or historical differentiation. The paper concludes with a statement referring to why the debate about the cultural turn is increasingly challenging for the humanities.
