Where Have All the Intellectuals Gone? : Confronting 21st Century Philistinism, Paperback / softback Book

Where Have All the Intellectuals Gone? : Confronting 21st Century Philistinism Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The intellectual is an endangered species. In place of such people as Bertrand Russell, Raymond Williams or Hannah Arendt - people with genuine learning, breadth of vision and a concern for public issues - we now have only facile pundits, think tank apologists and spin-doctors.

In the age of the knowledge economy, we have somehow managed to combine the widest ever participation in higher education with the most dumbed-down of cultures.

In this urgent and passionate book, Frank Furedi explains the essential contribution of intellectuals both to culture and to democracy - and why we need to recreate a public sphere in which intellectuals and the general public can talk to each other again.
