Blue Collar Intellectuals
“Blue Collar Intellectuals: When the Enlightened and the Everyman Elevated America,” was a lecture of Georgetown University’s Tocqueville Forum on the Roots of American Democracy.
Daniel Flynn looked back at a time in the U.S. when the general population was interested in high culture and intellectuals were as important to popular culture as entertainers were. He responded to questions from members of the audience.
