Abstract:This paper attempts at identifying the intellectual profiles and attitudes that are characteristic for the last period of Romanian communist society, as they are represented by the literary critic and essayist Monica Lovinescu in her Diary, 1985-1988 (Humanitas, Bucharest, 2002). In the first part we shall be reviewing the theoretical aspects of the intellectual issue in recent researches, tracing the main characteristics that define it, as well as the attempts to draw a typology, to classify the functions and to reveal the contemporary status of the intellectual. The second part will concentrate upon the positions that were occupied by the intellectuals living in Romania or in diaspora in the structure of the intellectual field from the end of the ‘80s, upon the current debates in that period, and also the role played by Monica Lovinescu in maintaining the civic and democratic conscience of Romanian intellectuals. The methodological starting point of our paper is represented by the French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu’s theory of the intellectual field (see, among other works, Homo Academicus, 1984, and Les Règles de l’Art, 1992). The conclusions will try to establish a comparison between the Romanian ‘version’ of the intellectual during the communist epoch, and the Western theories on this professional and social instance, as well as an overall look upon the postcommunist developments of the representations of the Romanian intellectual.
