Intellectuals don't comfortably settle into reality as it is; instead, they ponder how things should be and search for ways to make the necessary changes. They destabilize the established order, they wake up sleeping consciousnesses, and they shake up settled minds. This book offers 50 profiles of men and women who meet the idea of the critical intellectual. The result is a collective religious history of the 20th century characterized by the proposal of a critical theory of society and religion in liberating terms. Featured intellectuals include Simone de Beauvoir, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Albert Camus, Ignacio Ellacuría, Giulio Girardi, Hans Küng, Elisabeth A. Johnson, Federico Mayor Zaragoza, Raimon Panikkar, Karl Rahner, Dorothee Sölle, Amina Wadud, and María Zambrano.
