Disturbed by the profound sense of disorientation that appears to afflict many of our cultural institutions, universities and schools, the author was prompted to write this book as he thinks the public deserves a high quality of debate and, as an audience with infinite potential, should command far greater respect.

'Where Have all the Intellectuals Gone?', described by former Oxford don Terry Eagleton as a 'virtually important book', is a short and sharp critique of the way in which intellectual life has been degraded....Furedi's book has been welcomed by serious thinkers on both sides of the political divide, such as Eagleton on the left and philosopher Roger Scruton on the right." ~ Spiked Culture, Down with 21st Century Philistinism, Brendan O'Neill

'Furedi is excellent on the dumbing-down of a culture which as more education than ever but less value for ideas and critical discrimination.'~ Tribune Books, Unite against the Philistines, Nov 2004
'Frank Furedi is one the the most incisive critics of the bureaucracy that has spread like dry rot through the university sector. He is also a tireless campaigner against the philistinism that infects academia....it is so good to have someone such as Furedi campaigning against form-filling and management crassness. He is eminently readable' ~The Times High, Is 'dumbing down' really 'reaching up'?, Gary Day, Dec 2004 (Times Higher Education Supplement)
