Overview
This book gathers together writings on the transformation of the intellectual and the challenges posed by citizenship against the backdrop of dismantling the Modernity project, the decline of Marxist ideology and the contradictory and competing value-systems of our times; it also includes several studies regarding the Portuguese and Spanish intelligentsia, particularly in the context of dictatorial regimes and as an inherited framework for more recent intellectual topographies. The analysis they provide draws relevant implications for our understanding of the changes in the conditionings, nature and meaning of the intellectual’s function.
