"The intellectual no longer has to play the role of an advisor. The project, tactics and goals to be adopted are a matter for those who do the fighting. What the intellectual can do is to provide instruments of analysis, and at present this is the historian's essential role. What's effectively needed is ramified, penetrative perception of the present, one that makes it possible to lacate lines of weakness, strong points, positions where the instances of power have secured and implanted themselves by a system of organisation dating back over 150 years - that is the intellectual's role. But as for saying, 'Here is what you must do!', certainly not."− Michel Foucault (1980)
"What I propose, therefore, is very simple: it is nothing more than to think what we are doing."− Hannah Arendt, The Human Condition (1958)
