About: What It Means To Be An Intellectual


source: my comment
i enjoyed this :) ... i think you are getting at it from a gut viewpoint that is very refreshing. you are right to contrast the intellectual with a person of action ... certainly there is a preference in our culture for the latter ... though even i count myself among the former ... though frequently i malign that in myself; because to prefer to think rather than act is rarely wise. i find the intellectual in myself is self conscious ... he recurses* ... he anoints my creations ... like a vulture he must devour that which i do.
* misspelled in the origninal comment ... a neologism which means: the act of recursion.
