This ebook consists of a summary of the ideas, viewpoints and facts presented by Thomas Sowell in his book "Intellectuals and the Society". This summary offers a concise overview of the entire book in less than 30 minutes reading time. However this work does not replace in any case Thomas Sowell's book.
Sowell examines the great influence of intellectuals on modern society, he analyses the incentives and constraints under which their ideas have developed.
Most importantly he points out that their views have often been proved to be wrong by empirical evidence and how little their views have changed after that.
