 Intelligentsia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Use of the term "intelligentsia" is first reported to have occurred in the Russian Empire in the first half of the 19th century.
In English this word is often applied to the "intelligentsia" in Central European and Eastern European countries in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Additionally, the intelligentsia of Central and Eastern Europe, being divided mostly by national dependence, fostered a sense of responsibility for one's own nation, including the belief that progress of a nation mostly depends on the cultural level of the intelligentsia of the nation.

During the partition period of the nineteenth century, the intelligentsia was the chief repository ofnational consciousness.

 INTELLIGENTSIA
Intelligentsia was identified as one of three formal "classes" of revolutionary Soviet society, along with peasants and workers.
However, in the Gorbachev era the intelligentsia presented itself in an expanded or metamorphosed guise as a fledgling "civil society" and, throughout Eastern Europe, contributed to the fall of Lenin's focused and narrowed fraction.
Second, the particular "interests" of the various sectors of the intelligentsia must be given proper weight along with their "ideologies." All too often intellectuals are treated as if they did not eat or shelter themselves, or as if they had no intrinsic and quotidian vested interests.

 Paul Flewers: Socialism and the Intelligentsia
The term ‘intelligentsia’ is problematic as although there is general agreement that it constitutes a discrete social stratum, there are two widely accepted definitions of it, particularly in respect of Russia.
Although the Russian intelligentsia put itself at the service of the Russian masses, it did not necessarily mean that the masses were enamoured of the intellectuals’; efforts to serve them, or indeed wanted to have anything to do with them.
The intelligentsia in Russia was more developed as a discrete social formation than in any other European country specifically because the modern ideas that were attractive to thinking men and women were that much more in contrast to the miserable level of elite political culture than in countries to its West.

 Intelligentsia Between New Left and NeoLiberalism
This process was partly the job of intelligentsia (within given intellectual frames, in given constitutional forms, and on the waves of the new class much broader than them); and it partly made the outstanding era of intelligentsia complete.
Intelligentsia of course, also as an all-time representative part of the new class, got to the peak of its integrated, civilizational success – intellectual system of values, lifestyle-mission, human rights-based system of values as concrete intellectual system of values covered international politics’ and international publicity’s system of values almost completely.
In intelligentsia’s issue built upon a reconstruction of the new class – beyond the fact that we’ve outlined the problem of the individual and the group – the original diversity and the multiple nature of 1968 is present from the beginning, in a decisive way.

 Dar-al-Hayat: Returning to the Intelligentsia | The Agonist
This comes as the members of the intelligentsia are becoming more and more indistinguishable members of the public and as the novelist, poet, critic, doctor, university professor, intellectual and journalist abandon their role as opinion makers.
Returning to the intelligentsia is a return to consciousness, and the diversification of symbolic figures, points of view and moving across the spectrum are intellectual and cultural demands, more important than the political.
The intelligentsia, however, will not be able to accomplish their desired role before resolving the focal point of friction with the authorities, namely, the freedom of expression.

 The Intelligentsia And Socialism
That the European intelligentsia, in so far as they are not directly hostile to the ideas of collectivism, at best stand aloof from the life and struggle of the working masses, neither hot nor cold, is a fact to which Adler does not shut his eyes.
Thus, if the grounds for the intelligentsia joining the socialist movement are to be sought principally outside the economic sphere, this is explicable no less by the specific ideological conditions of existence of mental labour than by the cultural content of socialism” (page 7).
It arouses discontent among members of the intelligentsia with socialist sympathies, from whom it demands discipline and self-restraint—sometimes in respect of their “opportunism” and sometimes, contrariwise, in respect of their excessive “radicalism”—and dooms them to the role of querulous lookers-on who vacillate in their sympathies between anarchism and national-liberalism.

Under Socialism, there was the dissident intelligentsia and the red intelligentsia, though the dividing line between the two was very often unclear at the time, and has been quite impossible to sort out in the years since 1989.
The dissident intelligentsia ranged from a limited number of outspoken anti-Communists who were oppressed together with their families, to the majority who resisted more or less passively, were careful what they said and went out on to the streets in November 1989.
The intelligentsia was accustomed to being superior, but it was not at all prepared for running a country at a time of difficult transition.

 AFA Issues: Church in America - Commentary by Rev. R.J. Rooney
It did not take long for the clergy, who were initially accepted as peers and even mentors of the Intelligentsia, to be viewed with suspicion, animosity, and eventually disdain for obvious reasons.
The allure of status and power combined with allegations that the clergy were both uneducated and ignorant caused, and is still causing, a flood of religious leaders to seek the acceptance of men rather than the quiet approval of God.
When Jesus was tempted by Satan in the wilderness (metaphor and hyperbole the religious intelligentsia would say) He was offered recognition ("throw yourself off the pinnacle of the Temple") and status and authority ("all these kingdoms can by yours").
