I read this interesting take on the function of intellectuals, probably more specifically philosophers, and I wondered whether distinctively Christian Theologians might see some of their vocation in this reflection. It is certainly a vocation needed in the Church today:
"…people today, I don’t know what they expect of intellectuals. If I’m honest, at least as a philosopher, I don’t have answers. We intellectuals do not have answers. If you ask me what to do about ecology, bah, what do I know? What we can do is change the very questions. We can show to what extent the very way we approach a problem, which is a very real problem, is part of that problem."
