According to the enotes summary, Schorske‘s point was that “in Vienna politics and culture were interdependent, and between 1848 and 1914 that city produced three generations aware of that interdependence” (enotes, Salem on literature, Fin-de-Siècle Vienna).  If we extrapolate this to a larger generalization, we would say that politics and culture are independent, and exist and develop independently of one another.  People who expect the culture to advance and develop along with politics are wrong.
