When you picture an intellectual, who do you see? Professor Zena Hitz says that somewhere along the way, the idea of what an intellectual is and does became distorted.

«The real thing is something more extraordinary but also more available to us,» Hitz adds, differentiating between an intellectual life constantly in pursuit of something else, and one that enjoys ordinary activities like reading and thinking.

An example is young Albert Einstein, who spoke highly of his time working in a patent office and hatching «beautiful ideas» long before becoming a famous physicist.
