فكرة الكتاب الرئيسية تتلخص في مناقشة قضية مهمة هي : دور المثقفين (أو المفكرين) المعاصرين، واضمحلال مكانتهم، والتغير الجوهري لنظرة المجتمع للمثقف؛ فبعد أن كان المثقف صاحب رؤية وهَم حضاري ومجتمعي، يُنظر إليه باحترام كبير مصحوب بغموض شبه مقدس عادةً، حتى وإن كان كلام هذا المثقف [...]

Furedi makes a lot of important points against the institutionalized infantilization that takes place in academia and other public organizations like libraries and museums but he caricatures the opposing 'side' of his argument unfairly at times. He for example attacks reflexive modernity thinkers who link knowledge with risk in our everyday lives. The argument actually points out the nefarious nature of intensive specialization of fields because there is a loss of accountability and there is no [...]

أين ذهب المثقفون؟ يفتتح هذا الكتاب بالحديث عن الشعبوية التي حدثت في مجالات عديدة عالتعليم العالي والسياسة والفن وغيرها اضافة لسطحية الذين يتوسدون المناصب. فالمثقف هو عكس الخبير والاتجاه العام هو نحو التخصص بدلا من الشمول، والتعليم من اجل العمل، والسياسة من اجل الانتخاب وغ [...]

Bardzo chciałam nie zgadzać się z niechęcią autora do polityki inkluzji. Po przeczytaniu całości muszę jednak przyznać, że byłam zbyt bezkrytyczna wobec podobnych działań i ich konsekwencji. Potrzebuję czasu, żeby to wszystko spokojnie przetrawić.

Umumnya buku ini dapat kita bahagikan kepada tiga bahagian. Bahagian pertama penulis membangkitkan persoalan pendefinisian siapa itu intelektual dan bagaimana tanggapan masyarakat terhadap intelektual dalam masyarakat sejak zaman Pencerahan. Penulis berpandangan sejak zaman Pencerahan sehinggalah sekitar 1970an intelektual masih lagi dianggap entiti penting dalam perubahan sesuatu masyarakat kerana mereka merupakan autoriti ilmu yang sangat berpengaruh. Kemudian selepas bermula pertengahan era 1 [...]

في البداية بتعتقد الكتاب موجه للمثقفين وينتقهدهم ،لكن بعد ما تتقدم وتقرا بتكتشف انه ينتقد دور الموؤسسات الثقافية وتأثيرها على التعليم والفنون ،بالنهاية الكتاب انتقد الأثنين وبشكل محايد بالإضافة للجمهور. الكتاب اغلبه مفردات صعبة وجمله احيانا تحتاج منك توقف لتربط بعض الأفك [...]

Well yeah, I can agree with many of the symptoms Furedi discusses in his book--and does well--but the monomaniacal rant against 'inclusion' I don't get. As a sociologist he could have discussed the tendency of bureaucracy to self-expand. As an ex-Trotskyist, he could have talked about the commodification of everything and the submission of intellectual life to the profit motive. Instead, he chose a vague--and very American conservative-sounding--'culture of inclusion'. Meh. Ranting against 'poli [...]

The big question, Mr. Farudi, is "So who gives a damn". It is easier to manage apathetic idiots. As ever, those who will want to learn, will do so in the privacy of their studies, and use their knowledge to better themselves (although there is no correlation between knowledge per se and wealth at the moment). As for elites, they are here. Always have been. That they publically eface themselves is a normal defence tactics. Elites tend to be mauled by the masses, so it is best to pretend that you [...]

يقع الكتاب في قرابه 250 صفحة , يحتوي على : ( رحلة شخصية إلى بلاد الفلستينيين / ألحط من قيمة ملكة التفكير / ألعاب فكرية سخيفة / تسطيح المحتوى المعرفي للمناهج الجامعية / الهندسة الاجتماعية / ثقافة الإطراء / التعامل مع الناس كأنهم أطفال / كلمة ختامية ردا على نقادي ) الكتاب لم يجذبني حق [...]

This is a great book about how our culture (particularly regarding American and British) have lower standards and how this impacts us. I felt that Furedi lent an objective voice to a topic consistently debated by scholars on both the left and the right. This second edition includes an Afterward, in which Furedi responds to his critics.

Urgent, overwhelming and well, intelligent. Though I'm violating the "show don't tell" good writing mantra, I don't really have any energy left after reading this to actually demonstrate what it's trying to say.

Book for intellectuals to find themselves. It should have a sign on the cover saying First read and understand major and medium philosphers. Then read this book.

good book, cannot agree with Furedi's ideas %100. Nevertheless, I quite agree with his main concerns.
