IAS Book Launch

The Responsibility of Intellectuals - Reflections by Noam Chomsky and others after 50 years

Confirmed panellists: Chris Knight (co-editor of the book and Professor of Anthropology, research fellow, UCL), Milan Rai (anti-war activist and writer) and Jackie Walker (activist and author). 

With the publication of ‘The Responsibility of Intellectuals’ half a century ago, Noam Chomsky burst onto the US political scene as a leading critic of the war in Vietnam. Privilege, he argues, brings with it the responsibility to tell the truth and expose lies, but our intellectual culture only pays lip-service to this ideal. The essay has been described as ‘the single most influential piece of anti-war literature’ of the Vietnam war period.
