    Turkish author Orhan Pamuk and United Nations Development Fund head Kemal Dervis are two Turks who have made it onto a list published by the political magazine "Prospects" of the "100 World Intellectuals." The list, which was compiled using results of a poll participated in by about 20,000 people, puts Orhan Pamuk at number 54 out of 100 people. Kemal Dervis ranks at number 67 on the list.

    Writer and critic Noam Chomsky heads the list, with philosopher and writer Umberto Eco right behind him. Rounding out the top five on the list are Richard Dawkins, Vaclav Havel, and Christopher Hitchens. One of the most important criteria for receiving a vote was that the intellectual in question must still be alive and active in his or her arena.
