…an opportunity for a much wider kind of frontierless exchange and dialogue is to reconstitute a public sphere, which was, after all, insofar as it existed, the product of a very specific set of historical and political circumstances. And was very narrow. And I think that a very different public sphere which is less grounded in a traditional conception of the disciplines and the professions and the institutions; which is more open to a kind of porous notion of civil society, more open to the organic intellectual function; which is responsive to a kind of Lloyd Best call for nondisciplinary, extradisciplinary thinking. A lot of those things are to constitute a new space of dialogue in which, of course, people would harangue one another till the cows come home.
