Giddens and Hutton on the public intellectual

The Space of Democracy event was held at Newcastle University last week. Their own site doesn’t mention it (!) but Anthony Giddens and Will Hutton held a conversation which included a discussion of the public intellectual.

See this post, which quotes the following from Foucault:

“It seems to me that we are now at a point where the function of the specific intellectual needs to be reconsidered.” – Foucault, Truth and Power.
