The frequency of new research paradigms as characteristic of science and philosophy since the mid- twentieth century initiates discussion on models of rational explanations of the world and models of their understanding and acceptance. In this newly opened space different disciplinary experiences whose heritage is explainable by ars memorativa are encountered.

This paper offers a summative review of the functions of literary text as a cultural component of foreign language teaching, with a focus on French language textbook materials aimed at adolescents and adults, and with respect to the common traits with adult education/teaching. It is shown that French– and Yugoslavian-authored textbooks dating from the mid-20th century imply a didactic/educational aim of handling literary texts, in other words, an elitist and populist view of culture.
