Abstract

Wallerstein (1979, p. 119) posed these intellectual–moral questions more than three decades ago: ‘I would phrase the intellectual questions of our time—which are the moral questions of our time—as follows: (1) Why is there hunger amidst plenty, and poverty amidst prosperity? (2) Why the many who are afflicted do not rise up against the few who are privileged, and smite them?’
