The Role of the Intellectual--An Excursion into Self-Criticism.
Galtung, Johan
Higher Education in Europe, v27 n1-2 p59-63 2002
Distinguishes two roles of the intellectual, one in search of truth and the other in search of power. Sees the latter as closely related to the emergence of nation states and centralized capitalism and as problematic when it results in a small elite expropriating the challenges that should belong to others.
