Absent Minds? The question of intellectuals in Britain

Have intellectuals ever existed in Britain? In so far as they have, are they merely pale imitations of the real thing? Are they anyway now on the point of extinction? In this lecture, Stefan Collini, one of the UK's leading historians and cultural critics identifies what he calls a 'tradition of denial' about intellectuals in Britain.

With Stefan Collini, Philosopher and Professor of English, University of Cambridge

Chaired by Baroness Onora O'Neill, Principal, Newnham College, Cambridge
