The purpose of the third chapter is to retrace the transformation of intellectuals in the passage from an industrial to a post-industrial society, up until the global network society, through a brief critical review of the main sociological themes that have dealt with this issue. The basic theory is that intellectuals are no longer a social and cultural elite defined by their relationship with political movements, but a mass and a variety of highly differentiated actors who find an environment full of risks and opportunities on the Internet, while taking part in the dynamics of power and counter-power, of criticism and economic production in a global society.

Abstract

The purpose of the third chapter is to retrace the transformation of intellectuals in the passage from an industrial to a post-industrial society, up until the global network society, through a brief critical review of the main sociological themes that have dealt with this issue. The basic theory is that intellectuals are no longer a social and cultural elite defined by their relationship with political movements, but a mass and a variety of highly differentiated actors who find an environment full of risks and opportunities on the Internet, while taking part in the dynamics of power and counter-power, of criticism and economic production in a global society.
