The participation of intellectuals in the Syrian revolution was greater than expected. Intellectuals were jailed during the revolution. Intellectuals contributed to various dimensions of its activities. Intellectuals stood out among the leadership of the opposition groupings that appeared in the wake of the revolution. The names Najati Tayyarah and Razan Zeitouneh and Fadwa Soliman and Burhan Ghalioun give just an initial impression of the role of Syrian intellectuals in the revolution.
