This chapter considers the relation between an intellectual's work and an intellectual's life, and whether the knowledge of how an intellectual debased his or her life contributes to a critical understanding of an intellectual's work. Mihailo Markovic is a world-renowned Yugoslav philosopher recognized for his writing on humanism, social democracy, and human rights. However, what is now intellectually vexatious and morally disheartening is that Markovic became a major supporter of Slobodan Milosevic. He was a key ideologue in Milosevic's political party responsible for planning, initiating, and carrying out war crimes and crimes against humanity in Bosnia–Herzegovina.
