"Our concern for the emergence of a functioning intellectual group
should be considered as a development need. It is a vital condition
for nation-building. To lack intellectuals is to lack leadership
in the following areas:

1. the posing of problems
2. the definition of problems
3. the analysis of problems
4. the solution of problems

Even the posing of problems is in itself an intellectual problem.
A society without effective intellectuals will not be in a position
to raise problems."

- Prof. Syed Hussein Alatas (1928-2007)
