"Intelligentsia"

From the Feb 2008 issue of New Criterion:

"A few salient characteristics defined the intelligentsia. To begin with, an intelligent was expected to identify first and foremost as an intelligent. Before the birth of the intelligentsia, and in societies without an intelligentsia, a well-educated person might regard himself first of all as a nobleman, a scientist, a Christian, or an Anglophile, but to be a Russian intelligent one had to renounce all other identities or, at least, regard them as secondary. For an intelligent, revolution, not his profession, was his true calling: thus the joke in The Possessed* when one character asks whether it is wise to hire an engineer committed to universal destruction.

Intelligents were also expected to share a set of beliefs. To be sure, these beliefs varied from generation to generation and allowed for some diverse positions, but, until the twentieth century, they always included a commitment to materialism, atheism, socialism of some sort, and revolution. As the government had its censorship, the journals controlled by the radicals had their own "second censorship" to enforce orthodoxy. Chekhov deeply resented that pressure. "Under the banner of science, art, and oppressed free-thinking among us in Russia,' he objected, "such toads and crocodiles will rule in ways not known even at the time of the Inquisition in Spain' a prediction that, of course, turned out to he a gross under- statement."

From the review by Gary Saul Morson of the book Motherland: A Philosophical History of Russia, written by Leslie Chamberlain.

*The Possessed is a 1872 novel by Fyodor Dostoevsky.
