Philistine is a derogatory term used to describe an attitude or set of values. A person called a Philistine is said to despise or undervalue art, beauty, and intellectual content. Philistines are materialistic, unthinkingly favor conventional social values, and favor forms of art that have a cheap and easy appeal. The Philistines begins When Arthur Fenton, the most outspoken of all that band of protesting spirits who had been so well known in artistic Boston as the Pagans, married Edith Caldwell, there had been in his mind a purpose, secret but well defined, to turn to his own account his wifes connection with the Philistine art patrons of the town.

Miss Caldwell was a niece of Peter Calvin, a wealthy and well-meaning man against whom but two grave charges could be made, --that he supposed the growth of art in this country to depend largely upon his patronage, and that he could never be persuaded not to take himself seriously.
