Example text

Political dispossession of the intellectuals has not been, therefore, a disaster pure and simple. It has brought in its wake unexpected bonuses, some of them undoubtedly attractive, and all endowed with the quality of rendering themselves desirable and indispensable through protracted use and habituation. For this reason, it does not necessarily breed discontent. On the other hand, however, it certainly does not add life to the old legislative ambitions. To remain eligible for the bonuses, contemporary intellectuals must 16 LEGISLATORS AND INTERPRETERS stick unswervingly to the Weberian injunction of keeping the poetry of values away from the prose of bureaucratically useful expertise.

There is, of course, an inner differentiation among the followers of this strategy, as there is a not insignificant difference between Adorno and Rorty. On one extreme, there is a genuine feeling of defeat, despair and desperation; the fact that the hopes of les philosophes have been dashed is regretted and bewailed, and the culprits are sought; capitalist rule, bourgeois philistinism, or ruthless market forces are alternatively selected and condemned as villains of the sad piece. Step by step, social reality itself comes to be seen as doomed and is duly condemned.

It is only too easy to misinter pret, after the years, the ‘culturalization’ of the world as necessarily involving this ‘cultural relativism’ with which the idea of culture seems today inextricably linked. The intellectual ideology of culture was launched as a militant, uncompromising and self-confident manifesto of universally binding principles of social organization and individual conduct. It expressed not only the exuberant administrative vigor of the time, but also a resounding certainty as to the direction of anticipated social change.
