(p.87) 5 On the German Intellectual Spirit and the Modern University
Jacob Talmon

Amikam Nachmani

Manchester University Press

The German idea of the prevalence of the intellectual spirit is the subject of this chapter. Talmon discusses the idea of the German university that highly affected the academic wolrd in Europe and the rest of the world. The chapter brings examples of German political inferiorities that were compensated by the prevalence of German universities and intellectuals. The University of Berlin has become a model that was copied and developed in other places. The chapter discusses past Jewish experience where political inferiority was compensated by intensive intellectual activity. The chapter refers to the status of German professors and brings examples from Talmon's descriptions of them.
