Traditionally , political philosophies are often subject to the charge that they are "utopian." This can mean several things, but one version of the charge is that abstract, idealized, unrealistic political theory is worthless since it (at best) has nothing to contribute to actual practice. I want to skeptically examine this narrow account of the value of intellectual work, both as applied to political philosophy, but also as applied to intellectual work in general. Even more generally, this dispute merits a look at the very nature of value and it's alleged connection to practice. (philosojerk)
