Abstract

[Extract] It seems appropriate at a meeting of professional sociologists to commemorate the passing on the 25th of January, 2011, of one of the greats of 20th century social science – Daniel Bell. However, Bell resists easy categorization; and was more 'public intellectual' than 'academic specialist'. While he held positions at the University of Chicago and Columbia, before spending his last two decades as Henry Ford II Professor of Social Sciences at Harvard University, he also spent much of his intellectual working life associated with magazines such as The New Leader, Fortune and The Public Interest.
