Intercultural Public Intellectual Engagement

gets there—the conflict or challenge to which it gives rise by urging the recognition of the excluded, the inferiorised and the misrecognised, and by the formation of new, inclusive, hyphenated and multiple overlapping identities. The dialogue comes into being because of identity-based claims; it proceeds by recognising identities; and its goal, its teleology, is the construction of new identities and new relationships, which are not reducible to redistribution. 3 Multiculturalism and Interculturalism The kind of public intellectual engagement or

Felix Frankfurter and the Law

, placing former students in the administration, and behind the scenes advocating for policies supported by his friend and mentor, Brandeis. He had turned down positions on the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts and as United States Solicitor General, choosing to remain at Harvard, apparently unconcerned that many of his colleagues disapproved of his liberal activism. By his fifties, in sum, Frankfurter could point to an extraordinary career as a lawyer, public intellectual, and political actor. Much of what he did – his defense of radicals, his attacks on

Authorial Self and Modernity as Reflected in Diaries and Memoirs. Three 19th-Century Hungarian Case Studies


The role of the diaries and memoirs in the process of the conscious self-reflection and their contribution to the emergence of modern individual personalities are well-known facts of the intellectual history. The present paper intends to analyze a special form of the creation of modern individual character; it is the self-creation of the writer as a conscious personality, often with a clearly formulated opinion about her/his own social role. There will be offered several examples from the 19th-century history of the Hungarian intelligentsia. This period is more or less identical with the modernization of the “cultural industry” in Hungary, dominated by the periodicals with their deadlines, fixed lengths of the articles, and professional editing houses on the one hand and the cultural nation building on the other. Concerning the possible social and cultural role of the intelligentsia, it is the moment of the birth of a new type, so-called public intellectual. I will focus on three written sources, a diary of a Calvinist student of theology, Péter (Litkei) Tóth, the memoirs of an influential public intellectual, Gusztáv Szontagh, and a belletristic printed diary of a young intellectual, János Asbóth.
