  Supporting the Intellectual Life of a Democratic Society
Intellectual talent and achievement are often treated as the status markers of an elite, and the formally meritocratic procedures of democratic education can be used to increase the stigma associated with modest educational success.
The very attempt to discuss intellectual life can be perceived as an attempt to lay a burden of judgement on people whose lives are too demanding to enable them to live up to it, and intellectual aspirations may be culturally marked as a betrayal of one's group, for example as "acting white".
Intellectual life tends to unfold as a set of independent strands, each of which is liable to be called to mind by a text, a thought, or a life-situation that it happens to speak to.

 future perfect >> feeling intellectual today? ::   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Intellectuality has always been seen as academic or upper class, and the general reader doesn't feel connected with this image today.
I think that intellectual writing has to learn how to be easily reached by the public, to become more modern and accessible without the urge to dumb down.
Intellectuality is what the British have always found so hard to accept about the French, who, after all, celebrate their philosophers in the same sense that we clap our hands when Jamie Oliver lisps his malaki's and pukka's.

And now the "hate crimes" laws pioneered by the left in the name of political correctness, are being invoked by Muslims to suppress publication of the Mohammed cartoons by a Canadian newspaper.
The intellectuals of the left, having built a reputation as defenders of free speech by striking a pose of defiance against innocuous threats at home, have now become the leading advocates for self-imposed submission to the Muslim hordes abroad.

 AnalPhilosopher Intellectual Dishonesty
An intellectual who sought something other than truth would be an intellectual in name only, just as a statesman, legislator, or jurist who sought something other than justice would be a statesman, legislator, or jurist in name only.
Intellectuals would rather not persuade at all than persuade by disreputable means.
Therefore, whether he wants to conform to the canons of intellectual honesty or not, he is bound by them and properly criticizable when he violates them.

An intellectual, this mediator between the socialist and the culture activist, the intellectual who has connected the politician with the civilian, he who carries the nation’s conscience all that and today here he is merely a name and a tag on an empty being.
This is an intellectual who has been hashed in the liberal garage and found himself by chance the technocratic expert who is right and hence started looking for justifications to his correctness.
Under the domination of the semi intellectuals and the common man unrealistic approaches, and with the globalization culture that lacks values it is surely the doom of an intellectual and probably his end.

 Chapter 4: The Intellectual, the University, and the State
Duff was for decades a serious activist who, despite her enormous output, has remained relatively obsure (especially in the United States).
She's not a "public intellectual"; she was far too important in modern history for that.
True intellectuals, like Peggy Duff, are unattractive to the ruling elite because they reveal things that those in power would prefer to conceal.

Further, it seemed to me, as I continued my research, that many of the historians who performed as intellectuals were somehow related to the American studies movement or to the field of intellectual history—perhaps because of the interdisciplinary approach of those fields, which is congenial to intellectual, activist work.
So part of my book was to follow the example of Commager as an activist intellectual, and part of it was to try to chart the relationship between the politics of Commager's generation and my own.
Commager's identity was both a partisan activist intellectual (especially as a journalist and traveling lecturer) and a scholar (a professor, teacher, and professional historian).

Political activist and intellectual Susan Sontag suffered from cancer
NEW YORK -- Susan Sontag, a leading intellectual and activist of the past half century who introduced the concept of "camp" to mainstream culture and influenced the way many thought about art, illness and photography, died yesterday.
In conversation, she comfortably used words such as "polyphonic" and "surreptitiously." She read writers from all over the world and is credited with introducing such European intellectuals as Roland Barthes and Elias Canetti to American readers.

 FrontPage magazine.com :: The Intellectuals' Michael Moore by Peter Collier
Some of the ideas on his intellectual curriculum vitae that are discussed in the following pages—his defense of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge; his support of holocaust revisionism—may surprise those who know Chomsky only generally as a critic of U.S. foreign policy.
But Chomsky was unlike other anti-war intellectuals in that he never made a cerebral return to Vietnam to rethink the consequences of the communist takeover there.
He remained behind, a bitter ender operating what sometimes seemed an intellectual version of a one man government in exile from his office at MIT and frequently complaining of being ignored and marginalized.

 washingtonpost.com: Arab Intellectual Hisham Sharabi, 77, Dies
Hisham Sharabi, 77, a prominent Palestinian American intellectual and activist who co-founded the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies at Georgetown University, died of cancer Jan. 13 at American University of Beirut Hospital.
Jewish activists over the years have criticized the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies as "anti-Israel." In 1981, the university returned $600,000 donated to the center by Libya, and in 1978 it returned a $50,000 donation from Iraq.
Sharabi was born into a wealthy family in Jaffa, Palestine, in 1927 and received a bachelor's degree in philosophy from the American University of Beirut in 1947.

 Gleaning tools: envisioning an activist intellectual praxis
Academic intellectual life is often deeply isolating, both in terms of how we conceptualize our work and how our work process is structured.
As Colin Barker and Laurence Cox note, activist theorizing is often dialogical, whether in relation to other activists, potential allies, or opponents.
This revised selection is a portion of a handout I used with a workshop I facilitated at a conference called Activist Scholarship: Making Social Movement Theory Matter, which took place at the University of Michigan in the spring of 2004.

 The Rule of Reason ::  Weblog of the Center for the Advancement of Capitalism
:: Posted by Edward Cline at 9:26 AM Robert W. Tracinski, editor of The Intellectual Activist, has taken a public stand that makes clear the gulf between his thinking and the philosophy of Objectivism that he had previously claimed to espouse.
"This is a kind of trickle-down theory of intellectual influence, in which the philosopher is the originator and only source of the ideas that drive the course of history, while the public intellectuals and the men in the specialized sciences are mere transmitters and translators of those ideas."

 Thinking man's rebel from Nigeria / Soyinka describes exemplary career as intellectual, activist and artist
In this way, the artist (Kongi, as he is affectionately known as) becomes inexorably interwoven with the fate and destiny of this country.
Perhaps it is because, more than any other activist or political individual in Nigerian history, he is able to remain firmly committed to his Yoruba ethnicity and nationality and yet paradoxically achieve and maintain a wider and uniquely Nigerian identity.
Rarely has a writer or intellectual of this generation written with such heart and honesty and lyricism (his words "The road and I...

 On Moral Sanction
Existentially, the irrational survives parasitically, by feeding off the rational; intellectually, an irrational idea gains influence fraudulently, by covering itself with a veneer of rationality.
Anyone from a gay-rights activist to a criminal counterfeiter to an overt anarchist can declare that he is merely asserting his "liberty" -- and no Libertarian (even those who happen to disagree) can objectively refute his definition.
In the absence of any intellectual framework, the zealous advocacy of "liberty" can represent only the mindless quest to eliminate all restraints on human behavior -- political, moral, metaphysical.

From the perspective of these three strands of intellectual, activist, and practitioner, we can organize the concerns that came out of the first two days of discussion.
This brings us to a second area of intellectual inquiry which is "How does Buddhism intersect with other intellectual traditions, specifically western ones?" For example, Buddhism has a strong ethical element in its practice, but it is unclear on matters justice, specifically economic and racial.
For Buddhism to be relevant for the 21st century, it must be able to take clear positions on the increasing unequal distribution of incomes in the world and the problems of racial injustice which challenge humanity in all parts of the world.

With all due respect, Duff is intellectually dishonest.
Intellectual honesty requires, at a minimum, attention to (and respect for) the intentions and purposes of those one criticizes.
By the way, another British philosopher, David Archard, who contributed a chapter to my anthology, exhibited the same intellectual dishonesty a few months later.
