Michel Foucault
Variant translation: "The job of an intellectual does not consist in molding the political will of others. It is a matter of performing analyses in his or her own fields, of interrogating anew the evidence and the postulates, of shaking up habits, ways of acting and thinking" - Remarks on Marx: conversations with Duccio Trombadori (Semiotext(e) , 1991), p. 11-12
