About This Item

Paris: Grasset, 1927. First Edition. wrappers. Very good. “The Betrayal of the Intellect” (PMM 419)
BENDA, Julien, La Trahison des Clercs (The Treason of the Intelligentsia), Grasset, Paris, 1927. 1 leaf + half-title + TP 1 leaf + [9] - 306 + 1 leaf = printer’s information + 1 blank leaf, Small Octavo, First Edition. PMM 419

“The publication of [La Trahison des Clercs] was one of the major events in political thought between the two wars. The ‘Clerc’ is what Benda conceived the intellectual to be, someone disengaged from the mere contingencies of existence and fighting for ideals which went beyond the demands of a given moment in space and time. In violent and brilliant invective, he attacked the intellectuals of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries for having fallen short of this ideal by becoming the devoted advocates not of ideals, but of groups or existences, material and transient, such as a nation or a social class” (PMM).
