"The delicate thing about the university is that it has a mixed character, that it is suspended between its position in the eternal world, with all its corruption and evils and cruelties, and the splendid world of our imagination." -- Richard Hofstadter
Richard Hofstadter (6 August 1916 — 24 October 1970) was an American public intellectual of the 1950s, an historian and DeWitt Clinton Professor of American History at Columbia University. In the course of his career, Hofstadter became the "iconic historian of postwar liberal consensus" whom 21st-century scholars continue to consult because his intellectually engaging books and essays remain pertinent to illuminating contemporary history.

His most important works are Social Darwinism in American Thought, 1860—1915 (1944); The American Political Tradition (1948); The Age of Reform (1955); Anti-intellectualism in American Life (1963), and the essays collected in The Paranoid Style in American Politics (1964). He was twice awarded the Pulitzer Prize: in 1956 for The Age of Reform, an unsentimental analysis of the populism movement in the 1890s and the progressive movement of the early 20th century; and in 1964 for the cultural history, Anti-intellectualism in American Life.
