In what respects are they responsible for, and to, that society? Should they seek to act as independent arbiters of the values explicitly or implicitly espoused by those around them? Should they seek to advise those in public life about the way in which they should act, or should they withdraw from any form of political involvement?

And how should their preoccupations with truth and language find practical expression? The contributors to this volume seek to provide tentative answers to these questions. They come from a wide variety of disciplines, ranging from economics to linguistics and sociology to philosophy, and are drawn from both America and Eastern and Western Europe. The volume is given a particular interest by recent political upheavals in Eastern Europe, where many intellectuals have been confronted with sharply practical, sometimes dramatic, choices about their role in the political arena.This volume results from two meetings held at the Institut für die Wissenschaften vom Menschen, Vienna.Contents:La trahison de la trahison des clercs by Ernest GellnerThe loss of responsibility by Elemer HankissHeritage and collective responsibility by Jerzy JedlickiPower and wisdom : the expert as mediating figure in contemporary Polish history by Jacek KurczewskiTextual responsibility by J.J.
