Does the intellectual still have a role?
Monthly Cultural Talk with Dr. Faisal Darraj

Tuesday 26 May 2015 | 6:30 PM at the Blue House

Together with Dr. Hisham Bustani, Darat al Funun’s cultural consultant Dr. Faisal Darraj discusses the role of the intellectual. This is considered one of the most common and obscure subjects due to the lack of clear definition distinguishing the intellectual, the writer, the thinker, and the preacher. The term has been associated with a host of topics such as the Enlightenment, political parties, the rise of culture and cultural values​​, intellectual freedom and future social and national projects. The talk will be in Arabic.
