Abstract

With The Sociology of Intellectuals: After 'The Existentialist Moment', Simon Susen and Patrick Baert make a collaborative effort to build upon Baert’s preceding book, The Existentialist Moment, in order to offer a new set of theoretical and methodological tools for considering the emergence of intellectuals and the constructive social and political role that they can play. While largely a book review-and-reply exercise, the book contains flashes of excellence, finds Sarah Burton, and will hopefully act as a spur for wider conversations aimed at developing a sensitive and fine-grained programme for the sociology of intellectuals.
