This chapter outlines the key themes of the book: the transformation that took place in Ireland during the 1950s and 1960s, Tuairim’s influence in debates on issues as diverse as Northern Ireland, the economy, politics, education, childcare and censorship and its role in the intellectual life of the country. It considers the scholarship that has taken place on intellectuals and the role of ideas and argues for a more nuanced understanding of the character, nature and place of intellectuals within society.
