Interesting interview with Steve Fuller.
An interview with Steve Fuller in being an intellectual today can be found here. It’s a detailed interview that addresses a range of questions around the role of the intellectual, the barriers that an intellectual might face and how being an intellectual fits with being an academic. The interview links in to some of the issues covered in lively and provocative book The Sociology of Intellectual Life (the last chapter of which is particularly good). The information about the book is here with links to some related podcasts.
