The rise of the embedded intellectual: new forms of public engagement and critique

Publication Date
  • Political Science


Over the past two decades, various social and political transformations have substantially changed the way intellectuals interact with the public, and the way they the public reacts. Opposing the argument that the 'public intellectual' is losing power or disappearing, this chapter argues that social and political critique have changed in form, but not declined in substance. It shows how new styles and strategies of intellectual interventions have emerged that herald a new era of public engagement and critique.
