CIVILITY AND SUBVERSION - THE INTELLECTUAL IN DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY

CIVILITY AND SUBVERSION - THE INTELLECTUAL IN DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY

This book provides a new account of the role of the intellectual in democracy. Arguing that society suffers from a systemic deliberation deficit, Jeffrey Goldfarb explores the potential of the intellectual as democratic agent, civilizing political contestation and subverting complacent consensus. Intellectuals are special kinds of "strangers" who pay careful attention to their critical faculties and are uniquely equipped to address the most pressing issues of today. A diverse set of intellectuals in action are analyzed, from Socrates to Central European political dissidents, from Malcolm X to Toni Morrison.
