inherently suspicious and aware of its own ideological entanglements. Lastly, in the final chapter of the Part and of the volume as a whole, The New Public Intellectual includes an exchange between the philosopher Simon Critchley and several of the contributors, in which Critchley ranges widely over a number of issues raised elsewhere in the volume, while also making the case for the significance of the public intellectual today. As the editor of The Stone, a philosophy blog published by the New York Times, Critchley is particularly attuned to the prospect for, as well as the difficulties of, bringing often complex ideas and arguments into an open forum with a wide audience. Overall, the essays included in The New Public Intellectual are much more likely to generate further discussion than to arrive at any real consensus regarding the role, or even the desirability, of the public intellectual in the twenty-Â rst century. fi But that further discussion is itself certainly desirable, as the United States and other countries attempt to deal with the ramifications of an even greater than usual anti-Ântellectual climate, even as the contributions of the intellectual are needed more than ever.
