The new intellectual



Everywhere you look, there is the abyss. Intractable economic crises and deeply felt social and environmental problems grip the planet, which is itself in danger of climate catastrophes. Liberalism shudders before these problems, having surrendered to monopoly capitalism decades ago. The Strongmen—Putin, Erdogan, Duterte, Trump, Modi—have put themselves forward as the saviour, whether in the United States or Brazil, the Philippines or Poland. New ideas seem to be hard to find, particularly ideas that spark hope for a future. It is in this context that we – at Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research – have been at work. In this, our 13th Dossier, we provide a short assessment of our understanding of our work – our participation in the Battle of Ideas and our commitment to the production of new intellectuals. These two matters – the Battle of Ideas and the new intellectual – take up the first two parts of this dossier. The third part enters a brief discussion of our political context and offers a map of our concerns and our research. We look forward to your response to our invitation to a dialogue.
