The Responsibility of Intellectuals|Noam Chomsky

This week’s Sunday reading list features Noam Chomsky’s 1967 essay titled ‘The Responsibility of Intellectuals’. In the essay, Chomsky had spoken out against the war in Vietnam and raised questions against the intellectual culture which was “subservient to power”. The essay completes 50 years since publication this week.
