"Les hommes dont la fonction est de défendre les valeurs éternelles et désintéressées, comme la justice et la raison, que j'appelle les clercs, ont trahi cette fonction au profit d'intérêts pratiques ". Les mises en garde de Benda pouvaient en 1927, au nom du réalisme, passer pour peu fondées. Aujourd'hui l'ouvrage apparaît comme étrangement prophétique. Les thèses de Benda parce-qu'elles se réfèrent à l'universel, ont triomphé de la double épreuve du temps et de l'histoire. A la mort de Benda, en 1956, Jean Daniel résuma le sentiment genéral en lui appliquant, avec plus de justesse même, le mot de Sartre à la mort de Gide : " Sa vigilance va me manquer."
