The perfidy of intellectuals
An excellent Start the Week on BBC Radio 4 this morning. Clive James on intellectuals, especially French intellectuals during the Occupation, and the few intellectuals who were right about fascism and right about Stalinism (the good guys: Albert Camus, Raymond Aron, Nadezhda Mandelstam). Also Jacqueline Rose, the most interesting and thoughtful of anti-Zionists, on intellectuals in Israel/Palestine.
