ABSTRACT
The article expresses the author's views on the role of intellectuals in international affairs. To say that international conflict has its source in the quarrels of intellects would hopelessly change the complexity of most conflicts and would attribute more influence to intellectuals than they have. The author notes that aspects of the influence of intellectuals are reflections of a deeper role they play in contemporary societies. As a consequence of the growing practical importance of such fields as law, medicine, science, economics, education and journalism, and, to a larger extent, as a consequence of the secularization of society, an outstanding feature of modern history has been the rise of intellectuals to positions of pivotal importance in society.
